ILOILO City – A multicab transporting between 70 to 100 liters of diesel fuel caught fire in Barangay Quintin Salas, Jaro district last night around 6:58 p.m.

According to Senior Fire Inspector Christopher Regencia of the Bureau of Fire Protection, the multicab was bound for Barangay Tagbak, Jaro.

Driver Randy Abella, 36, of Barangay Tanza Baybay, City Proper was supposed to deliver the fuel to an outlet of the company he worked for, the Chooks and Steak.

Regencia said the diesel fuel was in a drum at the back of the multicab and filled almost half of the container.

Abella quickly stopped his vehicle and ran way when he saw the fire. He was unharmed.

According to witnesses, said Regencia, the fire suddenly broke out and it stunned them.

A nearby motorcycle and burger outlet were slightly damaged.

The Bureau of Fire Protection based in Jaro quickly responded and put out the fire.

As of this writing, it was still investigating what caused the blaze.

Regencia said there could have been a “source of ignition” in the multicab.

The fire bureau estimated the damage the fire wrought to be between P250,000 to P300,000./PN
