Firefighters tried to put out a huge fire at Duljo Fatima, in Cebu City last December 25, 2018 (Tuesday) around 3am in the morning. The residents was unprepared and haven't had packed clothes or anything that is valuable to them.

The 3 sitios around the Barangay was left in ashes and the estimated cost damage is 3 Million Pesos. The fire affected the lives of 593 families.

The families were evacuated in Brgy. Sports Complex and the nearby Chapel. The government officials had given packed meals for everyone to give them hope in the midst of the terrible incident. Captain Elmer Abella said in an interview that he would propose a reblocking on the area and an accessible road for the residents.
