A three-year-old girl was reported to have died after she was trapped in a burning house during a fire that broke out at Kasalamatan Drive, Kasanyangan yesterday afternoon.

The fire quickly spread and razed several houses leaving dozens of families homeless.

DZT gathered that the fire started at the house of Johnny Amilbangsa where the girl was left alone during the blaze.

The girl’s mother Nurhaina Sampang tried to save her daughter but raging flames prevented her from doing so.  In the process she suffered burns in the body and the girl was left helpless inside the burning house.

Several houses made of light materials were also gutted down by fire.

Firetrucks from the fire substations rushed to the scene and firefighters managed to put the fire under control.

Other residents abandoned their homes bringing with them their personal and valuable belongings during blaze.

Fire investigators were still trying to determine the cause of fire as well as the estimated damage. – Dan Toribio Jr.
