Around a hundred families lost their homes to a fire that destroyed a densely populated residential area in Malabon City on Wednesday.

The Bureau of Fire Protection reported zero casualties and injuries, but said the fire razed more than 70 houses, causing damage to property valued at more than P500,000.

The fire started at a three-story building on Dulong Herrera Street in Barangay Ibaba around 3:19 a.m., and was extinguished at 6:05 p.m.

Malabon fire chief Richard Dionisio said BFP personnel experienced water supply problems and had a difficult time going into the area because the street was too narrow.

“We had to connect 12 hoses, each about 50 meters long, to reach the fire,” Dionisio said.

More than 50 firetrucks rushed to the site but could not immediately reach the affected areas.

Patria Agacaoili of the Malabon City Social Welfare and Development said the fire was caused by an unattended lighted candle.

Two fires broke out on Tuesday in Quezon City and destroyed around 550 homes and displaced around 1,080 families.

No casualties were reported in the two blazes.

The BFP said damage to property in the fires at Barangay Baesa and Barangay Bahay Toro amounted to P2.2 million.

Fire Insp. Sherwin Peñafiel said the fire in Baesa that gutted 500 houses and displaced 1,000 families started around 4:30 p.m. and was put out by 11 p.m.

The Bahay Toro fire, on the other hand, razed 50 houses and displaced 80 families.
