About 15,000 Residents of a Shantytown beside Manila’s Port have lost their homes in a fire that raged overnight. Fire Department Officials said 1,000 homes were gutted in the sprawling Parola Compound.
Several families often share Tiny Houses running along the district’s narrow alleyways. Firefighters successfully put out the fire early this morning local time.
Fire Officer Edilberto Cruz said seven people suffered minor injuries in the fire, and no fatalities were reported.
Three Evacuation Centres were opened, and food and water are being provided to the 3,000 families who lost their homes
