AT LEAST P2 million worth of property were lost in a fire that razed a house in Flores Village, Bangkal, Davao City Sunday dawn.
The house is owned by Ben Quiogue located at 117 Sampaguita Street, Flores Village.
Talomo police said the fire started at the playroom, between the dining room and master's bedroom at around 4:45 a.m. Sunday.

The Quiogue family is grateful that no one was hurt in the incident.
