The World Around, ^50-Million Fire Hits Manila's Chinatown '. MANILA, Saturday (UPI) -- The worst fire since the Japanese sacked much of Manila at the 'end of World War II destroyed hundreds of buildings in Manila's Chinatown before it was brought .under control early today. Damage. was estimated as high ts $50 million. ""There were no reports of casualties. - The blaze, fanned by a !5-mi!e-an-hour wind, 'broke out Friday afternoon in an auto supply store, "apparently as result of a short circuit. Within a short time flames were shooting up to 1,000 feet from the crowded district of narrow cobbled streets. * Hundreds of firemen responded to fight the flames but were hampered by low water pressure. The district is bounded by 30-foot canals, however, and firemen succeeded in containing the blaze. The flames leaped the canal twice but the breaks were contained.
