May Fire in Malapascua Destroys May May’s Store

A significant fire broke out in north Bario, Malapascua today after a lose connection to a ceiling fan overheated and started a fire. This fire quickly spread to the neighbouring rooms and the roof space to destroy most of the building. This included the homes of at least 6 people and a popular sari sari store owned by May May. I was first alerted to the commotion when the fast acting power company cut the power to the area and I heard cries of sunog sunog (fire fire). Seeing the number of people running to the area it was obvious we would need our bucket.
With no fire service in Malapascua some 200+ people dropped what they were doing to haul water from every available well and the ocean and quickly organized into bucket brigades (human chains passing buckets) to quickly drench the property in water.
As the fire spread through the enclosed ceiling space of May May’s store we struggled to deliver water where it was needed forcing the fire fighters to rip apart the roof and soffits.
