MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) has recorded a zero firecracker-related fire in the country during the New Year revelry.

This is contrary to the period December 31, 2018 to January 1, 2019, wherein the BFP recorded four firecracker-related blazes.

Based on BFP data, from Dec. 31, 2019 to around six in the morning of January 1, 2020, a total of 13 fire incidents were logged down although these were not due to the use of firecrackers.

BFP Spokesperson F/SSupt. Geranndie Agonos, the low fire-incidence is due to the public adherence to the advisories and warnings on the use of firecrackers and pyrotechnics.

“Kyung mayroon man pong firecracker-related sa kabuuan ng taon, makikita po na lalo po itong bumababa. Naitala po sa taong 2018, mayroon pong 22 sunog na bunga ng firecracker. Pero ngayon pong taong 2019 ay 13 na lamang po. So, higit pong bumaba ang bilang ng sunog bunga ng firecracker,” Agonos said. — (with details from Asher Cadapan, Jr.) /mbmf
