RIP Cafe Adriatico

One of the attractions in Malate, perished into ashes 2 nights ago.  Cafe Adriatico caught fire due to some faulty electrical wirings.  I don’t frequent it that much.  I’ve been there probably 4 or 5 times so far but it still is sad to lose one of the landmarks in Remedios.

Cafe Adriatico is just two block away from my place but I haven’t seen the ruins yet.  I’m not sure how extensive the damage was but hopefully, something may still be done to restore the place.  The firemen were responsive and were at the scene almost immediately.  A lot of volunteer fire fighters also showed up.

Fire is the one of the most devastating disaster but I do not know how conscious we all are of this or if we do care at all.  How many take the time to locate fire exits when they enter a building?  How many make sure that their offices have sprinkler systems or fire safety plans?  How many have fire extinguishers at home?  Is it paranoia to be thinking about all these?  Prevention, they say is better than cure.  And it is better to be safe than sorry.
