"Okay kami lahat." - UST head coach Bong Dela Cruz, assuring that his team is fine after fire broke out at the new UST gym.

Do not worry Growling Tigers fans, the team is fine.

After a fire broke out at the UST Quadricentennial Pavillion earlier today, head coach Bong Dela Cruz told ABS-CBN Sports that the team was not affected by the incident.

"Maliit lang, naagapan agad. Okay kami lahat," Dela Cruz said in a message to ABS-CBN Sports.

According to the Varsitarian, the fire started at around 10:30 in the morning and was declared out not one hour later at 11:24 AM.

Faulty electrical wiring at the second floor of the new gymnasium was the cause of the fire according to Insp. Efren Bereña of the Sampaloc Fire Station per the Varsitarian.

The Tigers, sitting on top of the UAAP with rival FEU with a 6-1 standing, are scheduled to start the second round on Sunday against the De La Salle Green Archers.
