    Fire Hazard

     

    Yesterday (EST 10:00AM local), fire burned through at least 10 houses, as I watched from the top floor of my apartment in Cagayan de Oro, a city in the south of the Philippine islands of Mindanao. See in the video, a man desperately tries to save his house from burning, risking his life in the process, by hopelessly dousing the flames with a basin of water. Fire officials later found out that the fire was a result from five year old boy playing matches as his mother left him with a next door neighbor while she picks up her children in school. Early estimates from officials says damages could sum as much as a quarter million pesos.
