• Dinagyang revelers unfazed by Chinatown fire


    Fire investigators have yet to confirm the exact cause of a three-hour  fire that razed down a heritage commercial building on Iznart Street in Iloilo City Friday evening. Tayengco Building, hosted the burned 11 stores with more than P30 million initial estimated damages at the heart of the city’s Chinatown. City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog said the fire did not mar the celebration of Dinagyang Festival during the weekend as the accompanying Kasadyahan mardi gras festival on Saturday continued the parade in front of the burned building. However, smoke from the burned debris did not deter the street dance of regional Kasadyahan participants who continue their performance in four performance areas around the city proper.
