                  Navotas fire leaves 1,300 families homeless=20

                  A fire, believed caused by a neglected kerosene lamp, =
gutted the homes of 1,300 families in two barangays in Navotas early =
yesterday morning.=20

                  Navotas Fire Marshal Gardy Antonio initially placed =
the damage at P10 million. No one was reported killed or hurt as a =
result of the blaze that erupted at around 2:15 a.m. The fire was =
declared out only at 7:35 a.m.=20

                  Arson probers said the fire started at the house of a =
certain Myrna Carvajal, of 41 Leongson Extension, Tabing-dagat, San =
Roque, Navotas. Strong winds fanned the flames, which eventually crept =
to adjoining houses in Barangay Daanghari.=20

                  Electricity in the area was reportedly cut three days =
prior to the incident due to illegal connections problems, prompting =
residents to use candles and kerosene lamps.=20

                  Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco, in an emergency meeting =
with officials of the local disaster coordinating council, ordered the =
immediate release of P1,000 to each of the affected families in Barangay =
San Roque and Daanghari as a form of financial assistance.=20

                  Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman personally =
rushed to the area for a first-hand look at the damage brought by the =
fire and the condition of the fire victims, who were housed temporarily =
in four nearby schools.=20

                  The Social Welfare office also distributed relief =
goods as soon as the fire was put out.=20

                  Meanwhile, as firemen and local residents were busy =
containing the fire, a cable thief was caught sawing off Meralco =
cablewires and was critically wounded after he was shot by an irate =
resident.=20

                  PO3 Rafael Espadero, officer on case, said the =
incident occured at around 4:30 a.m. when a certain Minde Pascual, who =
was trying to save his family's belongings, was suddenly hit in the face =
by a cable wire. Stunned and angered, he looked up and saw the suspect, =
identified as Edmundo Geraldizo, 52, of Dulo St., Kapalaran Extension, =
San Roque, Navotas, sawing off cable wires apparently with the intention =
to make some money from it.=20

                  Pascual whipped out a handgun and fired at Geraldizo =
several times. The suspect was hit once in the head and twice in the =
body and fell to the ground. Geraldizo was brought to the Tondo General =
Hospital for treatment, police said. =20
