CEBU CITY, Philippines — Grounded wires posed a challenge to Mandaue firefighters, who responded to an hour-long fire that happened in Barangay Tipolo, Mandaue City, past 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 10.
Senior Fire Officer 2 (SFO2) Noel Codilla, fire investigator of Mandaue City Fire Office, said this adding that the fire immediately razed other houses because these were also mostly made up of light materials.
“Problema kaayo ang wires kay grounded unya gaulan pa gyud,” Codilla said.
(The wires were a problem for us because these were grounded and it was raining.)
Codilla said that 10 houses were totally burned from the fire that was reported at past 3 p.m. It was declared fire out at least an hour later or around 4:23 p.m.
The fire struck the houses situated in 500 square meters area in the barangay.
