A fire razed early yes­ter­day morn­ing the Caloocan City Po­lice Sta­tion which is just be­side the city cen­tral fire sta­tion, de­stroy­ing some prop­er­ties and files of cases.

Fire Of­fi­cer 3 Al­win Cu­lianan of Caloocan City Cen­tral Fire Sta­tion, said the fire broke out around 4:30 a.m. and reached the fourth alarm.

Wit­nesses told ar­son in­ves­ti­ga­tors that the fire al­legedly started be­tween the of­fices of the North­ern Me­dia Group (NMG) and the Scene of the Crime Op­er­a­tives (SOCO).

PO3 Rafael Abuan Jr., chief of the Caloocan Po­lice Sup­ply and Lo­gis­tics Depart­ment, was sleep­ing inside his of­fice when he sud­denly heard an ex­plo­sion.

“Noong nag­is­ing ako puro usok na sa ceil­ing. Me­dyo malaki na ang apoy sa pasi­lyo,” he re­called.

Abuan, who did not have enough time to save his per­sonal be­long­ings in­clud­ing his money worth more than ₱100,000 inside his drawer, said he helped the five war­dens in trans­fer­ring at least 102 de­tainees at the cus­to­dial fa­cil­ity.
