QUEZON CITY, Philippines — At least 200 families were  displaced after a fire struck a slum community in Barangay Culiat in Quezon City yesterday.

The Bureau of Fire Protection said the fire broke out at the second floor of a two-story house at NIA Village at around 8:18 a.m.

The blaze reached Task Force Alpha at around 9:33 a.m., which means at least 23 fire trucks were needed at the scene.

Arson investigators said there were no injuries during the fire which razed around 200 houses before it was doused at around 10:53 a.m.

Damage to property was placed at P1.5 million.

Probers have yet to establish the cause of the fire.
