A fire razed about Php 500,000 worth of properties on Monday, April 15, in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental.
At least 72 families lost their homes due to the fire at the PBCM Compound in Brgy. San Antonio, Jasaan and they are currently staying at a nearby covered court.
The fire lasted for about five hours, from 3:00PM to 8:00PM, and immediately spread to 68 houses, which are mostly made of light materials.
Fire responders had difficulties entering the compound due to the narrow streets.
Per reports, this is the fourth time that the fire hit the said compound.
