CEBU CITY - Fire gutted more than 20 houses in Sitio Upper Kalubihan-Banawa, Barangay Guadalupe here Tuesday afternoon.

Fire Investigator Jovito Abelgas said children playing with matchsticks or candles may have caused the fire.

A subdivision near the area was spared from the blaze due to its firewall.

The incident came two days ahead of the observance of Fire Prevention Month.
