Recto Fire near Isetan and Doroteo Jose LRT Station

This afternoon, Recto Avenue have been “paralyzed” due to a massive fire in a residential area in Sta. Cruz, Manila, opposite Isetan Recto and near Doroteo Jose LRT Station. Classes have to be suspended in nearby schools and universities as a precautionary measure, my class included even if my building is 2-blocks away.

Recto Fire: 11 Dec 2009. 5:00 pm

Initial reports indicate that it may have been caused by “faulty electrical wiring” [Read: illegal connection!] which usually prove to post great danger to life and property. By reason of the incident, two children who belong to the same family died.

The LRT lines 1 & 2 halted operation and other public utility vehicles freed the whole stretch of Recto Avenue from Mendiola to Rizal Avenue [Avenida].

On the lighter side, I was lecturing on “fortuitous events” in Law and if they did not understand any better, I don’t know what is! 🙂
