Two more fires struck a residential area and commercial buildings here late Thursday night, hours after firefighters discovered the charred remains of two men who were trapped in the fire in Barangay Punta Princesa last Wednesday night.

At 10:44 p.m. Thursday, a fire gutted two two-storey buildings that house Wilkris appliance store, CircuitSmart Appliance Center and Sugano Furniture Display Center on Leon Kilat St. Carlitos Foodhaus, which is on the ground floor of one of the buildings, and some classrooms of the University of Cebu main campus were partially burned.

Cebu City Fire Marshall Aderson Comar estimated the initial damage at P750,000. SF03 Lowel Opolentisima said that based on their initial investigation, the fire started when an electric post between Carlito's Foodhaus and Sugano furniture sparked. The fire was declared under control in 15 minutes. As of Thursday midnight, no one was reported injured in the fire that was raised to Task Force Alpha.

Three hours earlier, at least 10 fire trucks rushed to Sambag II, where a fire gutted a house and damaged another. Thursday night's fires were the eighth and ninth fire to hit Cebu in just six days.

Power supply in Sambag II has just been restored around 7:58 p.m. when a spark was seen coming from an electric fan in the house of Elena Caban before the fire broke out. The fire then spread to the house of Normandy Navasca.

Sambag II barangay captain Carl Belarmino said a passerby saw the spark and immediately alerted the security of the nearby Aznar Coliseum. The guard immediately called for help. For Cebu City Fire Marshall Aderson Comar, the recent fires have taught the public to be more vigilant, that is why the fire in Sambag II was controlled in just one minute.
