TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol - Fire razed some 30 homes in Barangay Booy here Wednesday afternoon.

Around 80 residents were affected by the incident and they are currently sheltered at the barangay's covered court, according to the City Social Welfare Services.

No one was reported injured in the incident. 

The Tagbilaran City Fire Department said the fire spread quickly because the houses were made of light materials. 

Investigation on the cause of the blaze is ongoing. Some witnesses said it began in a house whose owner was not home at the time.
