The Office of Mayor Felipe Antonio B. Remollo will be processing the release of financial assistance to the families whose homes were totally or partially damaged caused by the fire incident last night in Poblacion 8 in coordination with Barangay officials led by Punong Barangay Maelyne Rose Mariano.
Personnel from the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office also responded to the fire incident and treated the injured even as members of the Dumaguete City Bureau of Fire Protection and the Filipino-Chinese Fire Volunteers joined forces to control the fire and save the community.
In his initial report, City DRRM Officer Allen Froilan Cabaron II also stated that the BFP deployed 4 fire trucks to suppress the conflagration and a resident was also transported to the hospital due to breathing difficulty possibly due to suffocation.
