On February 7, 2011, at around 10:00 p.m., an estimated 5,000 families lost their homes when a fire hit Brgy. Central in Agham Road, Quezon City. The fire lasted until 3:00 a.m. of February 8. The said community was subject to demolition operations in October last year to make way for the Quezon City Business District Project. (Photos by Tudla Productions / bulatlat.com)
