Manila hotel fire kills 5, more than 300 guests evacuated

Published on : Monday, March 19, 2018

Manila Around 300 guests and more than 70 Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp employees were evacuated after the fire engulfed a hotel and casino belongs from Acesite Hotel in the Philippine capital, Manila.

 

 

The Philippine firefighters said that the death toll had risen to five, after confirming two more fatalities and putting out the blaze a day after it broke out. All the victims were employees at the hotel casino owned and operated by state gaming regulator Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp (Pagcor).

 

 

The Bureau of Fire Protection of Philippines said it was still verifying a report that another victim brought to the hospital had also died. Several people including the tourists were injured.

 

 

The hotel is owned and operated by Acesite Hotel Corp, a subsidiary of Waterfront Philippines.

 

 

Acesite told the Philippine Stock Exchange that the hotel operations have been temporarily suspended until the proper clearances from the government regulatory agencies have been obtained.

 

 

Acesite said it was still waiting for the Bureau of Fire Protection’s final report on what really caused the fire. The city firefighters said several floors of the 509-room hotel were “totally damaged” but their investigation was still incomplete and suspecting for any sabotage.
