MANILA, Philippines – The damage from the fire that swept through a part of the Tutuban mall in downtown Manila for three days has reached P29 million, the Bureau of Fire Protection said Monday.

Director General Santiago Laguna, chief of the NCR Bureau of Fire Protection said the agency has just started its formal inquiry into the blaze that destroyed nearly 80 percent of the affected stalls in two clusters of the popular mall, a mixed-use business center.

Part of the investigation is the arson angle, given concerns raised by some tenants.

There are also allegations of theft, as some stall owners complained at the weekend their cash registers were broken into when they finally were able to enter their units.
