This lateral tunnel of the Malinta Tunnel complex was part of an underground fuel storage area. The collapsed fuel tank sits on a concrete cradle. Some of the lateral tunnels were collapsed when Japanese defenders blew themselves up during the recapture of the island by US and Filipino forces (23 February 1945). These collapsed laterals have never been excavated.
