An amount of around Php240 thousand was the damage cost by the fire that had occurred in Boracay two days ago.
This was learned from Bureau of Fire Protection or BFP Boracay Investigator FO3 Franklin Arubang, after a blaze consumed nine households at Sitio Tulubhan in Brgy. Manoc-manoc last Saturday afternoon.
Arubang said the investigation of its cause is still ongoing.
However, according to some witnesses, the fire started from a staff house of a spa facility in the island.
The mentioned staff house was owned by a certain Verlin Dela Cruz.
No injuries have been recorded due to the occurrence.
The fire incident last Saturday, March 2, is the first fire case recorded in Boracay since the Fire Prevention Month kicked off on March 1.
