Fire razes 100 homes along Agham Road

A fire of still undetermined origin is razing at least 100 homes along Agham Road in Quezon City as of this posting early Tuesday.

Initial reports on GMA’s Saksi newscast said the fire started at 10:56 p.m. Monday, and has reached alert level Task Force Bravo as of posting time. This means fire stations from other districts are mobilized to respond to the emergency.

Radio dzBB said at least three men and two women have sustained minor injuries from the blaze.

Fire officials said they are still looking into the cause of the incident.

Hundreds of Agham Road residents have been left homeless due to fire-related incidents in the past year.

At least 100 families lost their homes along Agham Road due to a fire in September last year. Four months before this, 200 families were also left homeless when their houses went up in flames.

Agham Road is part of Sitio San Roque, home to almost 10,000 families who were subject of demolition operations in October last year to make way for the Quezon City Business District Project. — Paterno Esmaquel II/VS, GMA News
