Despite the sweltering heat, thousands of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo fans gathered in Cagayan de Oro to welcome their teen idols.

On Saturday, both Padilla and Bernardo trooped to the southern city for the ABS-CBN Kapamilya Caravan -- the network's initiative in bringing Kapamilya stars closer to fans outside of Metro Manila.

More than 20 people were reported to have been rushed to a nearby medical station due to the heat, which reached 31°C, which made some fans faint.

Firefighters were called to help ease the heat by sparsely spraying the area with water. -- with a report from TV Patrol
