An early-morning fire that recently hit Market 3 in Navotas City claimed one life and gutted the homes of around 783 households, according to the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority. The city government has provided the immediate needs of the survivors including hot meals, relief goods, sleeping packs, hygiene kits and temporary shelter. “We have also coordinated with government agencies and private organizations for additional support,” Mayor Tobias Tiangco said. “As we extend our condolences and comfort to the survivors, let us also give them our help and support. The city government would be honored to serve as conduit of your donations. You may drop these items at the City Hall lobby,” he added. Tiangco asked the public to pray for the survivors. “Let us also ensure that we keep our homes and establishments safe from fire,” he said.
