Forest flames

Fires are raging this week in Gumatdang, Itogon, Benguet as well as Dontogan, Tuba, Benguet, and what makes the scenes more frightful are the areas’ inaccessibility due to the mountainous terrain which cannot be easily reached by firefighters. It is not yet clear how many areas have been gutted down, but firefighters and police are monitoring the inferno, which coincided with the celebration of Fire Prevention Month.
