We were enjoying the good air quality yesterday when it suddenly went bad. Went outside to check the vicinity and was surprised to see a huge cloud of smoke billowing from the North. We saw the smoke at around 5:20 pm.
Immediately checked Twitter and saw that the smoke was from an ongoing fire in Cubao. It was later on reported to be the old Araneta Center Bus Terminal. Video footage from netizens and the news showed the fire engulfed the whole block where the bus terminal was located. The fire was escalated to Task Force Bravo almost two hours after it first started.
GMA News reported that the fire started past 4 in the afternoon. BFP and fire volunteers from different cities arrived to respond. The incident was declared fire out at 10:09 p.m., much faster than the recent incident in Paranaque City which took more than 12 hours to address (maybe their water supply was more reliable).
Hope and pray for everyone's safety. Ingat lagi mga kapitbahay!
