The Narra Residence Hall caught fire hours after UP kicked off its Centennial Celebration.
The blaze not only burned down the old walls and rusty windows, but it also cheated underprivileged students out of their low-cost board and lodging.
“Insp. Arnel Ramilo, operations chief of the Quezon City Fire Department, said the fire started at 4:14 a.m. Because of the age and the type of building materials, the fire quickly engulfed the entire establishment. ‘Fortunately, we were able to contain it before it could spread to nearby buildings,’ Ramilo told the Inquirer. He added that no one was hurt in the incident as the building had been deserted since October…According to a report from the UP Police, however, “faulty electrical wiring“ could have ignited the fire.” Paano nangyari yun???
Ok let’s pretend we’re just a bunch of 4-year-olds…
Paano nga ba nagsimula ang sunog Mamang Fireman?
Sagot ni Mamang Fireman…
BAKA ginalaw ang wiring…siguro may isang magaling na Electrical Eng’g student na pinilit ayusin ang sirang wiring sa room niya dahil tinuturo ito sa kanilang klase.
BAKA cords and plugs…dahil konti lang ang saksakan sa isang kwarto, kulang ito para sa lahat ng mga gumagamit ng electricity para sa mga appliances kaya baka naglagay ang magaling na estudyante ng extension cord at ito ay ginamit ng roomates nya at eventually, nagcause ng overload…pumutok…AYUN…SUNOOOOG!
BAKA lamps at light fixtures…na nakalimutang patayin ni magaling na estudyante bago sya umalis ng Narra…sobrang init na dahil nung October pa sya nakasindi…ayun…pumutOK!
BAKA switches, receptacles, and outlets…nginatngat ng mga ipis at daga ang wiring ng switches at outlets kaya nung may nagsaksak eh PUMUTOK!…Sino kaya yun?!
BAKA fuses, circuit breakers…dahil sobrang tanda na ng building ay marami na itong sira ngunit hindi napalitan kaya AYUN…BUMIGAY!
KASI SABI NI…Chancellor basta sabihin faulty wiring eh…
This is the “only area” of Narra that was burned…this is actually the part facing Balara…cross that street and you’ll be standing right in front of U.PI.S:) Very convenient since U.P. is allegedly planning to build an annex for the U.P. Integrated School. Who cares about the dormers, anyway, right? They can all sleep in hell, says Roman.
