QC RESIDENCE BLAZED IN STRONG FIRE, ALMOST 200 HOUSES RAZED
A large fire broke out in a residential community in West Riverside cor. Santiago St., Quezon City, damaging almost 200 houses.
The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) raised it to Task Force Bravo, amounting to 27 firetrucks rushing in to rescue.
According to the BFP, most of the houses were made of light materials which made the fire spread quickly.
The authorities have been trying to keep the fire under control. BFP has still yet to determine how the fire broke out.
(ERRATUM: A typographical error concerning the number of houses damaged in the fire has been changed from 'almost 1000' to 'almost 200')
