He said the fire affected two other houses but it was immediately contained by responding firefighters from the Quezon City Fire Department and fire brigade volunteers.
No one was hurt or killed in the fire that was put out at 2:37 a.m.
Fernandez said investigators have yet to determine the cause of the fire that reached the second alarm. (Francis T. Wakefield)
