Authorities responding to a gas leak in Barangay Bangkal in Makati City

MAKATI CITY, Philippines – The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) reported that the gas leak in Barangay Bangkal in Makati City has already been placed under control.

Though the surrounding residents need not evacuate, the authorities still warned them to refrain from lighting matches or candles as it may trigger a massive fire.

Diesel leak was traced after residents smelled fumes coming from Phoenix Petroleum gas station at Evangelista Street corner Heneral Estrella Street in Bangkal, Makati.

The main road was temporarily closed due to the intoxicating fumes coming from the affected drainage system.

The oil firm immediately ordered the suctioning of the remaining diesel oil in their tank to avoid further leakage.

Phoenix Petroleum in a statement said the incident was an isolated case and vowed to take immediate action for the safety of the surrounding community. – Marje Pelayo (with reports from Asher Cadapan Jr.)
