At least three people, two of them minors, were killed in a fire that hit a residential area in Taguig City Wednesday.
The Taguig Fire Department identified the fatalities as Zenaida delos Santos, 68; Roniel delos Santos, 8; and Ar Ar delos Santos, 1 year old.
The victims were found inside their house at Block 5, Phase 1 Coco Hills Subdivision in Barangay Bagumbayan.
The Taguig Fire Department said the fire started past 11 p.m. Tuesday and reached the third alarm before it was put out at 12:55 a.m on Wednesday.
The fire also partially damaged the nearby house.
Initial investigation showed the fire could have been caused by an unattended gas lamp, since the victim’s house had no electricity for some time.
