A 71-year old woman escaped death after her store was intentionally set on fire in Guadaline Drive, Cabatangan last Wednesday.

Police said that Juanita Yucot Rosales, 71-years old, was inside her store when an arsonist reportedly set fire to the structure.

The old woman however was able to flee from the scene of the conflagration while neighbors tried to put out the flames.

The store, made of light materials, was partially damaged.

Bureau of Fire Protection investigators said that an arsonist used a piece of plastic pipe to ignite the flames which engulfed a portion of the building.

Police and the BFP are still investigating to determine the identities of the perpetrators.  (Dan Toribio)
