The fire broke out on 1 February close to the Skyway Stage 3 project in an industrial building that contained plastics. The Manila Public Information Office later reported that the fire had been brought under control. Some 50 fire trucks had been used to put out the blaze.

Approximately 300m of the structure has been affected. Contractor San Miguel Corporation said that the full extent of the damage and its impact on the construction has yet to be determined. The project had been due for completion within a few months. San Miguel Corporation has said that it will resume construction as soon as possible.
