Fire razed 14 houses in a barangay in Poblacion
Fire razed 14 houses in a barangay in Poblacion, Davao City early Saturday, damaging around P1.2 million of infrastructure.
Several residents of Barangay 4A lost all their belongings except for some clothes.
Barangay Councilor Marites Birneza, in her efforts to ensure the safety of the residents, was not able to recover any of her belongings.
Officials of the F. Bangoy Fire Station said the fire broke out at around 12:30 a.m. at the home of a certain Dennis Quiambao. They said an electrical short circuit caused the fire.
The houses were made of light materials, which made the fire spread quickly.
