NO STAR City this coming Christmas season, and until October 2020.
Fire razed 60 percent of the amusement park early Wednesday morning, October 2, 2019.
Pasay City Fire Marshal Paul Pili said the fire started at around 12:22 a.m. in the stockroom which contained stuffed toys and other prizes for the games.
It immediately spread to other facilities and rides. The only rides which were spared from the fire were those outside such as the ferris wheel and roller coaster.
The blaze also gutted the building of Manila Broadcasting Company (MBC), a sister firm, which houses FM stations Love Radio, Yes the Best and Easy Rock as well as AM station DZRH.
The incident reached Task Force Bravo and firetrucks from nearby areas were also called to respond.
No casualties was recorded.
The fire was declared under control around 4:32 a.m. and was declared out around 7 a.m. Wednesday.
In a statement, the MBC management said that they are closely coordinating with authorities to determine the cause of the fire.
“Despite the catastrophe, MBC FM stations Love Radio, Yes the Best, and Easy Rock will continue regular broadcasting operations while DZRH is expected to go back on air within 48 hours or less,” the company said.
“Star City, which was hardest hit by the fire, will be closed through the Christmas season,” it added.
