CAGAYAN DE ORO - Fire struck at least 30 houses in two separate barangays in Cagayan de Oro City on Thursday.

Fire Inspector Arnulfo Pabua said the fire started in a house in Barangay 22. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the blaze.

Due to the narrow road, fire trucks could not reach Barangay 22 and Barangay 26. 

With the help of residents, firefighters connected their hoses to penetrate the area.

The damage is estimated at around P1.6 million.
