Fire At Assessors’
A security guard at the Capitol shows firefighters the damage at the Provincial Assessors’ office when a short blaze hit it this afternoon. A guard had seen smoke coming out of the window of the office located at the ground floor of the Capitol’s south wing and radioed the other guards for help in putting it out. They forced the locked door open and used four fire extinguishers on the wall where an airconditioning unit had caught fire. By the time the Cebu City Fire Department arrived, the fire was already out. The initial investigation revealed that the airconditioning unit, although turned off, must have overheated because it was not unplugged. Damage was estimated at P1,000. Office records were not affected. The Provincial Assessor is tasked with assessing all taxes due the Provincial Government.
