Up to 3,000 families lost their homes after a fire broke out in Guadalupe, Makati last April 19.

The huge fire, which reached general alarm, struck the Laperal Compound in Guadalupe. All firefighters in Metro Manila helped to put out the blaze.

But the firemen had difficulty controlling the fire due to the narrow streets. Gas tanks also exploded. It took firefighters three hours to control the blaze.

Investigators said the fire was caused by unattended appliances.

Two were hurt, but no fatalities were reported.
