Halcon Street, Quezon City – September 14, 2009

It’s been a long while since we last posted our activities in our site. You can’t blame us for not doing so. Thankfully, there has been a scarcity of fire occurrences in the Metro for the past couple weeks.

Early today though at around 03:11AM, everyone was alarmed when a fire call aired through the radio frequencies. Operators blasted a fire call for verification well within our area of responsibility.

Just a few blocks from the residence of our Fire Chief, MCFRVI personnel quickly responded to the scene surprised to be welcomed by huge sets of flames. Rated at a 3rd level Alarm, the fire gutted down 3 residential buildings. Although no one was reportedly injured at the incident, loss to property was estimated at a whopping P800,000.


Government operatives declared the fire as “put out” around 04:45AM. MCFRVI stayed at the scene for fogging operations up until 05:30AM, ensuring the worried residents that we will not be leaving them until we are sure of their over-all safety.


The structures involved were duplexes so the risk of the fire crawling onto the next unit was high. And having to be closely connected to the burning units, smoke and vapor trails crept thru the ceilings and walls of these units. Thanks to our trained personnel and the oversight of our distinguished Chief, adjoining units were spared from irrelevant flooding operations which in turn may have caused more damage to property. Sometimes, if not most of the time, fire fighting techniques, when done improperly, may cause more harm than good.
