Two people died due to a fire that hit a bus terminal in Barangay Calumpang, Marikina City on Sunday morning.
The fire broke out at 9:24 a.m. at the BFCT East Metro Transport Terminal, and reached the first alarm, according to a report by Luisito Santos on Super Radyo dzBB.
The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) is still verifying the identity of the fatalities whose bodies were found between a burned truck and bus parked in the terminal.
The BFP is also still determining the cause of the fire, which burned down several vehicles.

A big truck, a bus, and a van were particularly affected by the fire.
Witnesses said they heard several explosions before the fire started.
The BFP is now looking at the possibility that firecrackers were being carried by one of the trucks, which might have caused the fire. —Giselle Ombay/KG, GMA Integrated News
