A fire in Muntinlupa caused all sorts of inconvenience in the area early Wednesday morning.
First, an estimated 80 families of informal settlers lost their homes to the inferno that started at around 9 a.m. alongside the Southern Luzon Expressway's northbound Alabang toll gate, reports said.
Despite reaching the second alarm and destroying the 400-square-meter lot, the hazardous event luckily didn't claim any casualties. A power transmission tower of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines, however, collapsed in the process, disrupting the operations of neighboring establishments and making the Alabang viaduct impassable.
Watch the thrilling sequence captured by a drone, courtesy of Muntinlupa City's Bureau of Fire and Protection, which looked like it was lifted straight out of a Michael Bay action flick:
Fortunately, the blaze was put out after an hour (declared out at 10:11 a.m.) and the road was re-opened 20 minutes later.
