VALENZUELA CITY, Philippines — Halos 2,000 pamilya ang nawalan ng tirahan sa Telecom Compound, Tampoy 2, Marulas, Valenzuela City madaling araw kanina.

Pasado alas-dos ng umaga nang magsimula ang sunog sa bahay ng Pamilya Jamolod.

Ayon kay Aling Fe Jamolod, sinunog ng isang di pa nakikilalang lalaki ang kanilang motorsiklo na siyang nagsimula ng pagkalat ng apoy.

“Talagang sadya. Hindi mangyayari na masusunog ng ganun. May nagsabi na nakitang tumakbo. Mahaba ang buhok. Tumakbo doon. Hindi pa identified (kung) sino siya. Trip trip lang iyon (dahil) wala kaming kalaban,” pahayag ni Fe Jamolod.

Umabot sa Task Force Delta ang suog dahil ayon kay F/Superintendent Anderson Cumar, gawa sa light materials ang karamihan sa mga bahay. Tumagal ang sunog ng halos dalawang oras.

“(Ang naging) problema, mahirap pasukin (at) problema (ang) suplay ng tubig dahil malayo (ang) hydrant,” pahayag ni F/Superintendent Mel Jose Ilagan.

Pansamantalang nanunuluyan ang mga apektadong pamilya sa Evacuation Center ng lokal na pamahalaan.

Samantala, tinulungan naman ng UNTVNews and Rescue Team ang ilang sugatan sa insidente. Karamihan ay nagtamo ng matinding paso sa balat dahil sa paghahanap ng lugar upang makaiwas sa naglalagablab na apoy. (Victor Cosare and Marje Navarro, UNTV News)

Several people are feared dead after a fire at an animation studio in the Japanese city of Kyoto on Thursday (July 18) and police are investigating a possible arson attack, authorities and local media reported.

The fire at the Kyoto Animation studio injured more than 30 people, 10 of them seriously, and one person has been confirmed dead, a spokesman for the Kyoto City Fire Department said.

Several people were confirmed dead at the site, public broadcaster NHK reported, citing police. A Kyoto police spokesman was unable to immediately confirm the report when contacted by Reuters.

Police have taken into custody a man who poured what appeared to be gasoline around the studio, NHK said.

The studio produces the “Sound! Euphonium” series and its “Free! Road to the World – The Dream” movie is due for release this month. (REUTERS)

At least five fires have southern Greece alight on Wednesday afternoon due to high temperatures and gale force winds, while at the same time a strong storm hit northern Greece leaving seven people dead, dozens injured and a fisherman missing, as well as losses or damages to properties.

On Wednesday afternoon, at least five fires triggered either by high temperatures or gale force winds swept across the Peloponnese Peninsula, Attica Peninsula, Lamia Bay, and Evia Peninsula.

The disasters were finally controlled before night fell due to the joint efforts of firefighters on the ground and planes in the air.

However, in northern Greece, another extreme weather phenomenon took the baton and threatened people in the north.

The extreme weather caused seven people, six of whom confirmed as tourists from Russia, Czech and Romania on vacation in the country, dead and the unidentified victim is said likely to be a local fisherman. The storm darkened the doorstep of the Chalkidiki Peninsula in northern Greece, and the country’s second largest city Thessaloniki.

“The grill and the iron plate for the barbecue were blown off there. The pavilion there also fell down. The cars were crushed,” said Despoina, a resident in Chalkidiki.

The damages brought by the first freak storm in 30 years was huge, though it only lasted half an hour.

“We have been living here for 25 years, but we have never seen this,” said Despoina.

The power supply in the northern coastal areas and trains running between Thesalloniki and Alexandroupoli, another coastal city in the north, were cut off.

The 22 injured people have been sent to a local hospital, with nine of them suffering fractures to varying degrees. (REUTERS)
