Davao City fire victims to receive help

January 4, 2017 By

The Davao City Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO) is set to release P391,000 in financial assistance to the victims of three different fire incidents in the last few days of 2016 in the City.

The fire incidents, which were among the 193 cases recorded by the Davao City Fire District (DCFD) in 2016, gutted down 21 houses.

The CSSDO has already extended immediate relief consisting of food and non-food packs to the victims.

Maria Luz Faranal, CSSDO’s emergency and disaster focal person, said the last three fires also affected 69 individuals who were room renters and boarders.

Records from the fire department showed that most of the fire incidents were typically caused by unattended lit candles and plugged-in electrical appliances and devices. CIO
