COTABATO CITY — A fire of still unknown origin destroyed the concrete stalls of the Cotabato City mega market, specially along Martinez Street at past 12 noon Friday, exactly one year and two days after a fire last year destroyed the two story building.

Arson investigators said the fire started in one of the stalls that sells plastic wares and dry goods.

The Bureau of Fire Protection put the fire under control about two hours later.

Nobody was injured in the incident.

It can be recalled that a fire hit the mega market on May 22, 2018, at about 7 p.m. destroying the vegetable, meat section, the southern portion of the building and the second floor.

Sam Mundas, market administrator said the May 2018 fire destroyed some 1,000 stalls and put the total cost of damages at about P1 million.

Arson investigators are yet to determine the origin of today's fire.
