30 hectares damaged in Casiguran bushfire

CASIGURAN, SORSOGON – Around 30 hectares of land in Barangay Inlagadian in this town were razed by a bushfire at around 9:30 last night.

The blaze damaged root crops, coconut trees, and cogon grass.

Local officials this morning said that the fire was already contained and will not spread further.

“We believe fire would not flare up to any further extent especially that the area is bounded by deep inland waterway. But small amount of smoke and flickering fire in the area compel us not to be complacent and be continuously on guard," Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (MDRRMC) Officer Louie Mendoza claimed.

Mendoza further told the press that the bush fire was already put out in Barangay Sta. Cruz. Meanwhile, their team is still verifying the fire incident in Barangay San Pascual.

Communication through cellphones and VHF radios, however, remain difficult because of the ongoing power outage and the toppled repeaters that typhoon Glenda caused. – PIA/BICOLSTANDARD.COM
