This incident comes only 18 days after a fire broke out in CASAA Food Center last June 13, 2015. Calls for help for the victims of the fire in CASAA are still being made. Ironically, the UP Broadcaster’s Club just launched infographics for the #HelpCASAA Initiative a few hours before the fire in the UP Alumni Center took place:
