MANILA, Philippines – A boarding house was razed by fire in Sagasa, Iloilo on Sunday.

The fire immediately spread because the house was made of light materials.

"May pumutok sa malaking bahay, baka main switch kasi pagtingin namin may apoy na," said the tenant.

No casualties were reported but the tenants were only able to save a few things.

The Bureau of Fire Protection is still determining the cause of fire and the actual cost of damage. – from a report by Joven Escaniel, ABS-CBN News Iloilo
