Afternoon blaze

Fire devours houses in Brgy. 34-D

Fire broke out in a residential area along Padre Gomez St., Brgy. 34-D, around 4pm, yesterday. 

Firefighters were able to respond immediately but the fire had already devoured structures in this community of closely built houses, some of them used as boarding houses. 

 One of the residents who live close to the burning houses told TIMES described the houses as mostly made of wood and light materials.

Lightweight materials are typically more combustible than traditional building materials like concrete. In the event of fire, these materials can ignite quickly and rapidly spread throughout the community as the city has experienced in fire incidents along the coastal areas of Quezon boulevard.

A police responder said the initial observation is that a fallen electrical post could have triggered the blaze.

As of this writing, fire  investigators are still working on the cause of the fire.

March is observed as Fire Prevention Month in the country by virtue of Proclamation No. 115-A, signed by the late former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. and Proclamation No. 360 in 1986.

It serves as a reminder of the importance of fire safety and the need for collective action to prevent fires and protect lives and property. By raising awareness, the community is empowered to create a safe environment and maintain sustained vigilance against threats of fires.
