FIRE!

Some 124 families became homeless after a fire broke out at 11:45 yesterday morning and razed several houses in Purok Katilingban in Brgy. 39, Bacolod City.

The fire quickly spread because ma-jority of the houses were made of light materials and there were difficulties on the part of Bureau of Fire Protection firefighters as they cannot penetrate the area immediately.

No casualties were reported and initial estimate of damages was placed at P2 million.

The incident was covered live by DYAF Radyo Veritas Global Bacolod anchormen/re-porters Chito Berjit, Rommel Pido, Rey Alejandrino, Malou Flejoles and Leroy.* (Chito Berjit)

Martin Cui, chairman of Calatrava Coal Multi-Purpose Cooperative told NDB new boilers (in new coal-fired plants) can be fueled by low grade coal just like what is being mined in Calatrava.

"The old model (of boilers) requires high grade coal but new ones with high pressure boilers only require low grade. Existing coal-fired plants that are old require high grade coal. New models only require low grade in order to operate and produce power," Cui also said.
