Two fires hit three commercial establishments and a house  in Bacolod City during the weekend causing damage estimated at more than P8 million. 

A fire damaged Merzci Bread and Pasties, FNE Fashion Shop and Zoliv Novelty Shop at Gatuslao Street, Brgy. 13, Bacolod City, at 9:48 a.m. Sunday, June 23.

The  fire that started  at the second floor of  Merzci Bread and Pasties caused an estimated  damage of P8 million, FSupt. Jenny Mae C. Masip, Bacolod Fire Marshal, said. 

The storage area of  FNE Fashion Shop is  located above the second floor  of  Merzci, she said. 

The fire did not cross to FNE Fashion Shop and  Zoliv Novelty Shop  because of a concrete fire wall but the two establishments  sustained water damage, Masip said. 

The owners of the three establishments are   CM and Sons Food Product Inc., Vanessa Jade S. Wu and  Lindsey Herchel V. Arroyo. 

Masip said they are still determining the cause of the fire. 

A fire also hit a house at Gatuslao Street, Purok Kamunsil, Brgy. 3, Bacolod City, 11:09 a.m.  Saturday, June  22. 

The damaged house is owned by   Marlo Jomalesa, which was occupied by his caretaker and her family, Masip said. 

Damage was estimated  at P63,000, she said.*
