A 6-year-old boy died after a fire hit his family's house in Las Piñas around midnight Thursday.

Victim Angelo Satur, a blind and mentally disabled boy, was reportedly trapped inside their burning house in Fatima Compound, Barangay Zapote.

Some neighbors claimed that Satur was being chained by his mother and stepfather every night to prevent him from leaving the house.

Satur's stepfather Bernardo Okomen, and mother Annalou Satur, were arrested after allegedly attempting to escape.

Authorities have yet to determine if the fire was deliberately set.

The blaze, which reached the first alarm, was declared out at around 1 a.m.
