QUEZON CITY, Philippines — Around 100 houses were reduced to ashes as fire razed Barangay Vasra in Quezon City an hour before the turning of the new year.
The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) said the fire immediately reached task force alpha on Palanas street at around 11 in the evening on Tuesday (Dec. 31) which left residents scurrying to leave the place with whatever household items they can bring.
Most of the households in the area were busy preparing for the new year festivities when the fire broke out.
The BFP firefighters declared fire out at past 1 in the morning.
Investigation on the cause of the fire is now in place said the BFP. — (with details from Nel Maribojoc) /mbmf
