Recently in the progressive city of Muntinlupa, Mayor Ruffy Biazon advised locals to be careful as the city had back-to-back incidents of fire which left many families homeless, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.
To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…
Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon advised residents to be careful in light of the successive fire incidents in the city that left more than 100 families homeless.
“From January up until this past week, we have seen more fire incidents even before we have reached March, which is Fire Prevention Month. “We want to remind all Muntinlupeños to be extra vigilant in practicing fire prevention because it is really hard to lose everything in a fire,” he said.
He told the public to “be careful and never leave open flames in the house, like stoves or candles. Let’s work together so we don’t have any more fires like this.”
In just nine days, three fires broke out in residential areas, affecting 112 families in Muntinlupa.
On Feb. 11, a fire engulfed six houses at Hacienda Rosario in Purok 2, Barangay Sucat, affecting 17 families or 53 individuals, according to a report by the Muntinlupa Social Services Department (SSD).
In Barangay Poblacion, a fire hit a residential area on Quezon Street on Feb. 17, razing 19 structures and leaving 49 families, or 181 individuals, homeless.
On Feb. 19, another fire razed 27 structures on Concepcion Road, Barangay Buli, affecting 26 families or 130 individuals.
Biazon called on all households and sectors, including the barangay councils, to work together to prevent or at least reduce the incidence of fire in the city.
The mayor voiced his concern to Muntinlupeños during his visit on Feb. 20 to the 46 families affected by the February 19 fire on Concepcion Road in Barangay Buli.
