Fire Chief Inspector Roy Aguto, Muntinlupa fire marshal, said the fire on Guillermo Street in Purok 6, Barangay Bayanan, erupted before 8 p.m. reached the fifth alarm past 9 p.m. and was declared out at 11:25 p.m.

Aguto said some residents suffered minor injuries while trying to save their belongings.

At least 600 families who lost their homes took shelter at a nearby school.

Arson investigators are looking at a short circuit or a firecracker as a possible cause of the fire.
