In the Philippines, beside Manila’s port around 15000, people have lost their residents in a fire that burnt overnight before being put out on Wednesday Morning. The officers of Fire Brigade department said, 1000 homes were destroyed in the sprawling Parola Compound. Many of the families often used to share the tiny houses with narrow alleyways.
This incident took place on Tuesday night, and the fire spread quickly. Seven people have got minor injuries in the fire, and no one has died, the Fire Officer Edilberto Cruz said. The investigation on this is under process. The Social Welfare Officer Regina Jane Mata says the three shifting centers have been opened, food and water are provided to all the 3000 families who have lost their house in the fire. Hours, after the fire was put off many of the people, were gathered on the road with their belongings, clothes, washing machines, electric fans.
 
Because of fire, there was a lot of traffic, and it was blocking trucks which were going to port or coming from there and even in nearby areas it affected the flow of vehicles.

We have got some of the pictures from the incident:
