It's a building under construction between W Fifth and Central Square Mall. Mostly empty. Sana walang mga construction workers na nasaktan. I'm relatively safe guys, I'm still a building behind the one burning. The area is full of fire trucks too. — Thysz #ResistTogether (@thysz) April 28, 2019 – with reports from Camille Elemia/
