Fire Hits Laperal Again!

Early this morning (Tuesday), Makati was alarmed by news of fire in Laperal, Guadalupe Viejo.  Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) tweeted that there is a Task Force Alpha fire in  Viejo at around 12:21 pm. At 12:40 pm, the blaze reached the general alarm, taking every help that they need from all the firefighters in the neighboring community. Third tweet was informing the vehicles that the southbound lane is not passable. By 2:15 pm, MMDA announced that the situation is under control.

Reports say that because houses were made of light wooden materials, the fire heightened quickly. Mayor Jun Jun Binay however made a way to help the residents by sending out tents. Also, MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said that some of the families will be transferred to a gymnasium to shelter the affected families.

Reports are still ongoing on what caused the fire.

I used to work sa katapat na establishment sa guadalupe and two of my former workmates lost their homes. im just thankful that they and their baby is safe. i feel bad for them kase they're from the urban poor and after the fire they didn't have anything else left.
