"Iimbestigahan po ang aksidenteng ito upang malaman kung papaano ito maiiwasan sa hinaharap," Roxas said. 
 
He also assured the families of the three firefighters and the four others who were injured of government assistance.
 
"Makasisiguro po ang lahat na ang mga nasawi at ang apat nilang kasamang nasugatan sa aksidente ay makatatanggap ng suporta at tulong mula sa pamahalaan," Roxas added.
 
Reports said the fighters came from Mati City to help putout a blaze in Manay when the brakes of the firetruck they were riding malfunctioned, causing it to overshoot the road and crash.
