Albay Governor Joey Salceda announced over Facebook that members of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) are now assisting residents to evacuate to a safer location.
Salceda added that the two helicopters, which were used to put out the fire in the town of Rapu-Rapu earlier this week, will conduct water drops starting 6 AM tomorrow.
The cause of the fire has not been established as of press time.
It will be recalled that fire also broke out near the foot of Mayon Volcano last Monday.
A forest fire was also reported tonight in the town of Tiwi, according to Salceda. – BICOLSTANDARD.COM
