Mother, son die in fire

Meanwhile, a 67-year-old woman and her son died in a fire that broke out in a residential area in Parañaque before dawn yesterday, according to the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP).

The fatalities were Salud Salvador Belmonte and her 41-year-old son Bryan.

Fire Officer 3 Janyne Marie Abad said the victims were trapped in a two-story house along Canaynay Avenue in Barangay San Dionisio.

“Bryan managed to get out of the house, but he went back inside to save his mother. But they were not able to make it,” Abad told The STAR in a phone interview.

According to the BFP, the fire broke out at 12:36 a.m. and reached third alarm before it was declared under control at around 3 a.m.

At least 40 other families were left homeless as the fire destroyed 20 houses, Abad said.

The fire quickly spread as the houses were made of light materials, Abad said.

According to a report by the Southern Police District, damage to property was placed at P75,000.

Arson probers said they have yet to determine what caused the fire.
