I pushed my children off because if we didn’t jump from the top, we would really get burned because the soles of our feet were already feeling the heat.

PCG spokesman Armando Ballilo said that the Philippine coastguard is looking into where the fire started.

According to local sources, there were three students, one youngster, two seniors, and three people with impairments among the passengers.

The 44-year-old woman who was hurt in the fire was transferred to a hospital for additional medical care, according to the coastguard officers.

The ship was said to have tipped to one side as a result of the fire.

Up to 400 passengers might travel on the MV Asia Philippines.
