Fire hits Greenbelt 3 in Makati

Fire struck a portion of posh Greenbelt 3 shopping center in Makati City early Thursday evening, a fire official said. FO3 Danilo Brizuela of Makati's fire department told GMANews.TV that the fire—now placed under third alarm—broke out at the mall's third floor level about 6:44 p.m. The cause of the fire and the exact area where the blaze started have yet to be determined, he said. As of posting time, fire fighters are still trying to put out the fire. A separate report by radio dzBB's Nimfa Ravelo said the situation in the mall "remains normal" except for the curious bystanders who started pouring into the area.—Aie Balagtas See/JV, GMANews.TV
