Star City will die?

Lisa Macuja, wife of Fred Elizalde, owner of Star City, showed authorities a Twitter post saying "Star City will die."

The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) on Wednesday assessed that 80 to 90% of the Star City compound in Pasay City, which includes the Manila Broadcasting Company (MBC) building and Aliw Theater, was razed by fire, according to a report by Maki Pulido on GMA News TV’s Balitanghali.

The iconic 28-year-old amusement park, Star City, located in Pasay City was hit by fire early Wednesday.

The massive park, which is located in the reclaimed area of the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex, is a common destination of school field trips and of children after they receive their cash gifts from godparents during the Christmas season.

The complex also boasts of holding shows, including ballet performances.

Sadly, the site will be closed this Christmas season after 60% of the compound was gutted in the fire that lasted for more than four hours.

Firefighters were wondering why different parts of Star City seemed to have started burning almost at the same time.

The amusement park has 600 workers.

Despite the catastrophe, MBC, which has 300 employees, will continue the regular broadcasting operations of its FM stations Love Radio, Yes the Best, and Easy Rock.

Its AM station dzRH is expected to go back on-air within 48 hours
