‘Will to survive’

‘Will to survive’

A father of three scavenges recyclable scrap materials through thick ashes that covered the Pasig River in Block 17 Baseco Compound, Tondo, Manila after a massive fire on Thursday evening left his family and the entire neighborhood of 300 families homeless.

Made up of light materials, the Bureau of Fire Protection-National Capital Region (BFP-NCR) estimated the cost of damages from the fire to be around one million.

The blaze accordingly started on the second floor of a house on Block 17, Old Site at around 7:40 p.m., the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) reported. (Lauren Ibanez/BENJAMIN CUARESMA/er/ai/mtvn)
