LOOK: Fire hits landmark art deco building in Baguio
BAGUIO, Philippines – Fire hit the former Pines Theater, one of the oldest buildings in central Baguio and a landmark art deco building, Friday evening, November 5.
As of posting, firefighters have yet to determinewhat caused the 6:45 pm blaze.
They were able to control the fire after about two hours.
Now known as the Pines Arcade, the place housed garments stalls, gadget shops, and a food court.
Established in the 1930s, the Pines Theater survived the carpet bombing of Baguio when allied forces liberated the country at the end of World War II.
In these changing times, courage and clarity become even more important.
