CEBU CITY, Philippines – A Sunday dawn fire damaged an apartment unit that is being leased by a policeman in Sitio Kawayan, Barangay Guadalupe, Cebu City.

The first alarm fire was reported at 1:59 a.m. and was totally put out after 32 minutes, said Senior Fire Officer 1 (SFO1) Romeo Birao Jr.

Damage caused by the fire was pegged at P20, 000.

Birao said that the fire that was believed to have been caused by electrical misuse broke at the second floor room of the two-storey apartment unit leased by Police Sergeant Mark Remedio.

Remedio, who is assigned at the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO), was on a trip to Leyte province when the fire incident happened.

Quoting accounts from the caretaker of Remedio’s apartment unit, Birao said that an unattended ceiling fan may have caused the fire.  But they are yet to continue their investigation to determine the actual cause of the fire alarm.

Birao added that they had difficulty in reaching the fire site because the road that led to the area was undergoing repair. /dcb
