CEBU CITY—Management of Metro Ayala confirmed that the ongoing fire started from the third floor of the department store inside Ayala Center Cebu at the Cebu Business Park here.

In a two-paragraph statement sent to the local media here, Metro Ayala confirmed that the smoke was detected about 9:30 p.m. on Friday from the stockroom of the toys department of Metro Ayala building.

“The Metro Ayala Emergency Brigade Team and Ayala Center Cebu Emergency Brigade Team are working with the Bureau of Fire and other emergency response teams to manage the situation. All customers and personnel were safely evacuated,” the statement said.

The fire department had already raised the fire alarm into task force alpha, which meant all fire stations within the Cebu City and the other cities and municipalities were asked to respond to the fire alarm.
