A fire raged overnight inside the Asia Brewery plant, seriously injuring a production operator. Up to 50 fire trucks had been deployed to the compound and several explosions were heard by nearby residents. Initially the fire was confined in the building housing in the blending area of Tanduay Distillers where pure ethyl alcohol and pure liquors were being stored. One of the members of the compound crew suffered third degree burns in 70 percent of his body. The victim was admitted into the hospital. The fire had been declared under control but the smoke continued to rise from inside the compound until noon. The volunteer fire men say that they were having difficulty putting out of flames because of the alcohol stock that had caught fire. The investigators have not determined the cause of the fire nor made any initial assessment of the amount of damage.
