5 killed in Camarines Sur blaze

Five people were killed after a fire razed an upholstery shop in Nabua town in Camarines Sur a day after Christmas.

Among those killed were a pregnant woman and three minors, according to Camarines Sur provincial police director Senior Superintendent Jonathan Ablang.

The victims were Anastacio Parina, the upholstery shop owner; Norminda Gavina-Parina, 37 years old and was reportedly pregnant; Alvin Parina, 5; Erlinda Parina, 3; and Vincent, 1.

Ablang said the upholstery shop, which served as the residence of the Parina family, caught fire around 11 p.m. on December 26.

The shop was located at Brgy. Santiago Old in Nabua town, he said.

The Nabua Bureau of Fire Protection is still looking into the cause of the blaze. 

Fire incidents are common in the Philippines on the days leading to the New Year, most of them caused by firecrackers and pyrotechnics. Faulty electrical wiring were also blamed for such incidents. - Jerrie M. Abella/KBK, GMANews.TV
