TWO children died after being left inside their burning house in Kalawaan Village, Pasig City (Metro Manila), on Friday morning.
Arson investigators identified the victims as Arlene Alvarez, 5, and her younger sister, Richie Anne, 4.
Initial investigation showed that the fire started around 8:40 a.m. and was put out before it reached the first alarm.
But the quick response from firefighters proved futile after they discovered the two dead children.
The Pasig fire came just a few hours after another fire hit a warehouse in Valenzuela City (Metro Manila).
On Thursday night, yet another fire hit a three-story building in Manila’s Binondo district.
