Fire incidents have  decreased this year, based on records of the Bureau of Fire Protection in Zamboanga.

Zamboanga District Fire Marshall F/Chief Inspector Clint Cha said that there are 18 fire incidents compared to 58 incidents for the same period last year.

Of the 19 fire incidents, 13 were reportedly structural fires and 6 were non-structural.

Cha has attributed the high number of incidents last year to the El Niño phenomenon whose effects such as dry vegetation and brownouts led to fire incidents.

The Bureau of Fire Protection is currently observing Fire Prevention Month this March. (Liza Jocson)
