Catch272 and Green Papaya Art Projects have burned down.
On Wednesday (06/03), the Kamuning LGBTQ+ night bar and the "longest independently run creative multidisciplinary platform in the Philippines" caught fire due to an electrical fire that started from their neighbor's second floor. Nobody was hurt, according to Green Papaya.

Sadly, a fire yesterday had immensely damaged this community beacon. Our friends are safe but they need our help.
"The ground floor ceiling collapsed. Fire also spread next door to our neighbor Rosalie, but they had more time to gather their things. Papaya/Catch buffered them from further damage," Green Papaya said in a statement. "The fire department's on-scene investigators say it was an electrical fire. They were kind enough to let us salvage what we can from the debris once they determined it was safe to do so."
