A Fire in Zamboanga caused the death of 15 persons.


The Fire started at around 3:00 AM.


The Bureau of Fire Protection personnel had a hard time going

to the public market to extinguish the fire because the street

going to the market is too narrow.


After the fire  is extinguished, 15 burned bodies were found.


The bodies were found at the bridge where the market is located.

More or less 350 shops in the public market were not spared

from the raging fire. Included among those burned were

substantial amount of vegetables and “ukay-ukay”

(used clothes).


Both side of the bridge were blocked which prevented the 15

victims from jumping down below which may have saved their lives.


According to the initial investigation made by the Bureau

of Fire Protection, the fire in Zamboanga City started from

one of the electric post in the public market.


The Zamboanga City Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) is assessing

the value of the burned properties.


Fire is suppose to be less frequent during the month of

October because it is the rainy season and the climate

is suppose to be cooler.


But what is important is the prompt response from the Bureau

of Fire protection (BFP) which was demonstrated in the Fire

in Zamboanga City.



The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) is a Philippine agency

responsible for the prevention and suppression of all

destructive fires on buildings, houses and other structures,

forest, land transportation vehicles and equipment, ships or

vessels docked at piers or wharves or anchored in major

seaports, petroleum industry installations, plane crashes

and other similar incidents, as well as the enforcement of

the Fire Code and other related laws.
