Shoppers and moviegoers in Gaisano Mall of Davao got a mild shock last Monday, April 12, 2010, when white smoke started creeping into the mall building. It turns out that a small fire broke out on the fourth level of the mall, where the cinemas are housed.
VJ Czar, a Davao blogger, witnessed the commotion from the outside. He was able to take pictures as the firefighting unfolded.
News outfits like GMA and ABS-CBN reported that the source of the fire was a failed welding job. Fortunately, the fire was quickly put out. Otherwise, it would have been a great loss to burn the new cinemas of Gaisano Mall!
