Orlando, Mary Rose, and Melody are children of Edita, all of Barangay Balon Anito, Mariveles.

“Fire out” was declared at 10:17 of the same morning.

The police chief said that based on the investigation of the Bureau of Fire Protection, the amount of the damaged properties was placed at more than a million pesos.

No one was injured in the fire that started at the ACJ disco bar, dela Cruz said, adding that a BFP arson investigator was still conducting investigation on the cause of the blaze.
