    Haze alert up in Cebu City as mall fire rages on | ABS-CBN News

    Officials on Saturday morning issued a haze alert in Cebu City as fire continued to raze a department store building of the Metro Ayala Center Cebu.

    As of this posting, the thick smoke billowing from the building, which caught fire around 9:30 p.m. Friday, has enveloped the Cebu Business Park commercial area.

    Nagiel Bañacia, head of the Cebu City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, on Saturday issued an advisory to the public warning about health risks that fumes from the fire may pose.

    Residents and motorists experienced very poor visibility in the area as firefighters continued operations to prevent the fire from reaching the main mall.

    Traffic enforcers were deployed to direct vehicles while motorists needed to switch on their headlights and fog lights to prevent collision on roads where smoke had reached.

    More than 13 hours since the fire started, the Bureau of Fire Protection has yet to declare the blaze under control.

    The fire was known to have started at the department store's toy stockroom at the third floor then reached the sixth and topmost floor of the building.

    Bañacia said the fire has destroyed the whole supermarket.

    No one was reported injured in the blaze as all customers and mall employees were safely evacuated.

    The fire was raised to Task Force Bravo on Saturday morning, prompting firefighting units from neighboring towns and cities to respond.

    Heavy duty construction equipment, including a crane, were earlier used to demolish the building's concrete walls to clear the smoke and let firefighters douse the blaze.

    FIRE threatens to destroy the landmark Metro Ayala department store and supermarket, one of the biggest outlets of listed Gaisano-owned Metro Retail Stores Group, Inc. (MRSGI).

    As of 3 a.m. Saturday, January 6, Cebu City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office Chief Nagiel Bañacia said the fourth floor of the store has collapsed and it might take two days to control the fire that erupted at about 9:30 p.m. Friday, January 5.

    The 7-level store, established in 1994, was the third outlet that MRSGI parent Vicsal Development Corp. opened, after Metro Colon (1982) in Cebu City’s downtown business district and Super Metro (1994) in neighboring Mandaue City.

    As one of the anchor stores of Ayala Center Cebu mall within the Cebu Business Park, Metro Ayala marks one of the first steps that Vicsal took towards becoming a world-class organization and expanding its reach by tapping the upscale market.

    The store then was touted as Vicsal’s "biggest and best."

    Today, it is one of the 52 stores that MRSGI operates across three retail formats - department store under the brand name "Metro"; supermarket under "Metro Supermarket" and "Metro Fresh N Easy"; and hypermarket under the brand name "Super Metro".

    MRSGI, retail arm of Vicsal, has since broken barriers, becoming the first Gaisano company and the first Cebu-based company in over a decade to list on the Philippine Stock Exchange.

    Prior to its market debut on November 24, 2015, MRSGI was already the largest department store and hypermarket operator in the Visayas. It also has branches in Central Luzon, Metro Manila and southern Luzon. Going public raised for MRSGI some P3.6 billion for its expansion.

    Nationwide, MRSGI ranks fourth among the biggest retailers in the country, after SM, Puregold and Robinsons.

    Since 2015, the company has been embarking on an aggressive expansion program that aims to double its footprint and bring its network to more than 100 stores by 2020.

    In the first nine months of 2017, MRSGI reported a "solid bottom line" with a net profit of P550 million, double that of the same period of the previous year, and sales of P24.4 billion, a 2.9-percent increase over the previous year.

    MRSGI chairman and chief executive officer Frank S. Gaisano, in a statement, had attributed the company’s growth to "merchandising improvements and investments in operational efficiencies."

    The Metro stock, with trading symbol MRSGI, closed at P3.82 on Friday, January 5. (SunStar Philippines)

    Metro Ayala mall fire flares out due to strong winds (posted 4 hours ago; January 7, 2018 Sunday)

    STRONG winds have fanned the fire inside Metro Ayala Center Cebu causing the raging inferno to flare out and razed down the facade of the establishment around 9 p.m. Saturday. Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP)-Central Visayas director Samuel Tadeo said firefighters will work double time to place the fire under control by Sunday dawn, January 7. Cebu City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office Chief Nagiel Bañacia said that firefighters who managed to enter the mall's building on Saturday afternoon have been working hard to stop the fire from spreading to the main area of the mall. Fire Senior Superintendent Tadeo said firefighters are dousing water in advance to prevent the flames from reaching the area where the mall's generator, which contained 8,000 liters of crude oil, is located.

    THIS is no ordinary fire. The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) 7 said that the flames that have engulfed the Metro Ayala Department Store since last Friday night may take two to three days to control. “We cannot penetrate because the area is already zero visibility and we have difficulty getting inside because of the extreme heat,” said Supt. Rolando Orbeta, BFP 7 assistant director on fire operations. Thick haze has blanketed the Cebu Business Park as firefighters continue to let the fire and smoke out of the building. “The method is called ventilation, which allows the fire and smoke to come out of confinement that gives our firemen the opportunity to shoot water from the outside. No firemen are deployed inside as the temperature in the mall can already melt safety gears like boots and breathing apparatus due to the extreme heat,” Orbeta said. The BFP 7 said that it received the alarm at 9:44 p.m. last Friday, just as the mall was closing. Cebu City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CCDRRMO) Chief Nagiel Bañacia said that as of 6 p.m. yesterday, firefighters managed to enter the building, working hard to prevent the fire from spreading to the main mall area. The blaze started at the toys stockroom on the third floor of the Metro Ayala department store around 9:30 p.m., said the Metro Gaisano management. The BFP 7 raised the alert level to Task Force Alpha, which means fire trucks from nearby cities had to respond. At 3 a.m. yesterday, the fourth floor of the department store collapsed, Bañacia said. A few minutes later, firemen made use of an aerial fire ladder, and bore holes in the establishment. He said the heat inside is making the building brittle, and authorities are afraid the structure might collapse. This prompted authorities to extend the cordoned area for the public’s safety and closed the entrance of the Cebu Business Park. No one was trapped inside the building, as customers and personnel were safely evacuated when the fire was detected, said the mall management. Orbeta said that they didn’t have any problems with the water supply, but admitted that they need more breathing apparatuses. Contained He said that they were able to contain the fire yesterday morning, and assured that the flames won’t spread to the rest of the mall. The fire was declared Task Force Bravo at 8:45 a.m., which tasked all fire stations in the cities and municipalities to respond. The CCDRRMO also released a haze alert, advising residents in nearby barangays with pulmonary and cardiovascular illnesses to evacuate. A jackhammer operator and driver, who helped bore holes in the wall, were arrested after they were caught allegedly stealing a pair of shoes worth P4,000. At 9 p.m. Saturday, the fire had started to destroy the columns of the building’s facade. Golden Prince Hotel and other establishments near the scene are taking measures to counter the haze from the fire. Aaron Que, the hotel’s corporate communications manager, said they closed all their windows and placed industrial fans throughout the hotel to make breathing easy for guests and personnel at around 11 p.m. last Friday. They also distributed free masks. The management of Perpetual Succour, the hospital nearest to the fire scene, also activated counter-measures to protect patients from the haze. It locked windows and distributed masks to personnel. It also placed industrial fans in non-airconditioned areas to blow the smoke away. The hospital has not yet received any reports of patients complaining about the haze. In a statement sent yesterday, Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. (MRSGI), the company behind Metro Ayala, said they worked closely with the BFP 7 other emergency responders to manage the situation. It reported that all customers and personnel were safely evacuated and there were no reported injuries or casualties. “The management of Metro Gaisano would like to thank everyone, the firefighters, the volunteers, the government personnel, its employees, concerned citizens, and all those who have helped and assisted in putting off the fire,” said Atty. Vincent Tomaneng, corporate secretary and chief legal counsel of MRSGI. Priorities The company official also promised to take care of the employees affected by the incident. “We will take care of them and will make the necessary arrangements in due time,” said Tomaneng. Ayala-subsidiary Cebu Holdings Inc. (CHI), the developer of Ayala Center Cebu, in a statement said they’re closely monitoring the progress of the fire. “Safety remains a top priority. All customers and personnel were safely evacuated, and the mall is closed today (Jan. 6) while the fire is being managed. We are coordinating with our other merchants on their operational concerns,” said the CHI. “We are requesting for your understanding.” Some Ayala Center Cebu merchants took to social media to announce the temporary closure of their stores and postponement of sales activities yesterday. Rustan’s Cebu announced on its Facebook account that it was postponing its “End of Season Sale” due to the fire until further notice.
