From the inquirer:

MANILA, Philippines -- Line 1 of the Light Rail Transit (LRT 1) has resumed operations except at the Carriedo Station in Manila, near which a fire had broken out, LRT spokesperson Jinky Jorgio said.

LRT 1, which runs from Baclaran to Monumento and back, resumed almost full operations as of 4:30 pm, Jorgio said in a phone interview.

However, passengers are still not allowed on or off LRT trains at the Carriedo Station because it is near the still burning Good Earth Emporium.

The fire, which broke out around 5:40 a.m., remains at fifth alarm but is now contained, according to the Manila Bureau of Fire Protection.

From GMA7:

Morning rush-hour traffic in Manila's downtown Sta. Cruz district was snarled Monday after a fire of still undetermined origin hit a motel along busy Carriedo Street.

Radio dzBB's Carlo Mateo reported that firefighters and fire volunteers cordoned off the Good Earth building as the fire razed the Paradise Motel at its sixth floor.

Manila Police District (MPD) head Chief Superintendent Roberto Rosales ordered the cordon to make sure looters do not enter the L-type building, which houses several stalls.

As of 8:30 a.m., the fire had reached the fifth alarm, even as police and firefighters prevented civilians from entering the building.

Employees of stalls selling jewelry and electronics tried to save their wares, even as bystanders crowded the area to watch the fire.

No one was reported injured in the fire, as firefighters evacuated all personnel and customers from the motel.

The fire caused "zero visibility" in the area, prompting the Light Rail Transit Authority to have its coaches bypass its Carriedo station.
