An explosion at the posh condominium Two Serendra in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig resulted to three fatalities and two casualties according to the latest update from Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas during an interview with the media.
According to initial reports, the loud explosion happened Friday night at around 8 PM. Due to the strong explosion, a large chunk of concrete from one of the condominium units fell onto vehicles below. Residents of the condominium were forced to evacuate the building due to thick smoke.
The fatalities were reportedly killed by the debris falling off from the damaged unit. A Starex van and an Absenson truck were crushed by large chunks of concrete that fell from the upper floor condo unit.
A witness told ABS-CBN News that he heard the explosion at the fifth floor of the building, where one of the units was damaged by the blast.
Authorities have yet to reveal the cause of the explosion as well as further details as investigation of the incident is currently underway.
