CAVITE CITY, Cavite – Residents were disturbed when another fire broke out in the so-called Sitio Cuadra in Barangay 22-M here, Tuesday night, March 1, 2022.

According to the report obtained by operatives of Cavite City Police under Police Lt. Colonel Gilbert Cruz, local police chief found out that a minor faulty electrical wiring short-circuited in the house of Elizabeth Rebechea and was immediately extinguished.

The incident caused panic among the residents of the said city due to a series of fires already taking place in the area for the past few weeks.

Cavite City Mayor Bernardo Paredes expressed her explanation, “Ngayong gabi po ay binulabog po tayo ng mga sunod-sunod na balita ng sunog sa iba’t-ibang barangay sa ating ciudad,” Mayor Totie Paredes said in the social media page of Cavite City.

“Bilang inyo pong alkalde ay makakasigurado po kayo na lahat ng maaaring gawin ay ginagawa na ng ating lokal na pamahalaan upang maiwasan na ang nangyaring sunog sa palace at aplayang munti. Inaasahan ko po ang kooperasyon ng lahat at maging kalmado at maging mapagmasid lalo na sa mga fake news at mga tao na nagpapakalat ng maling impormasyon sa mga kaganapan ngayon. Maging mapanuri po tayo at magtiwala sa mga namumuno sa ating mga barangay. Ireport agad ang mga tao na kahina-hinala nasa ating mga barangay upang masigurado at makaiwas sa panic at kaguluhan,” said Paredes.

“Pinapaalalahanan ko pong muli ang lahat ng mga namumuno sa barangay, pulis at (Bureau of Fire Protection) BFP na maging handa upang masigurado na makakaiwas na tayo sa mga ganitong pangyayari,” the mayor added.

The first fire that occurred on February 12 in Sitio Palace left 700 evacuees, 150 families homeless at Barangay 10-A. Both evacuees are now in respective temporary shelters in Ladislao Diwa Elementary School and Sta. Cruz Elem. School while waiting for the financial aid from the local government office.
