MANILA -- A man and his son were killed after they were trapped inside their burning house along Francisco Street in Barangay 75, Caloocan City on Friday evening.

The victims were identified Jose Chan, 63, and his son Jackie Chan, 26.

Their bodies were found inside the restroom.

Investigation showed that the older Chan went back inside the house to rescue his son, who was sleeping at the time the fire started.

Unfortunately, both were not able to get out of the house anymore.

Authorities have yet to identify the cause of the fire, which razed around 20 houses, and the cost of damage it caused. -- Report from Robert Mano, dzMM
