The fire started from the house of Reynaldo Dinigaya who also had a vulcanizing shop, he said.

Witnesses said the fire came from the electrical wiring, but the cause of the blaze is still under investigation, Duaban said.

The fire quickly spread because of strong wind and the houses were made of light materials, he added.
