"We need to be safe and be aware of what to do to guarantee that we will not endanger the lives and limbs of everyone and their properties due to fires," stressed Villar.

She spelled out safety measures to prevent the occurrence of fires. They are as follows: -Unplug gadgets not in use as they can be a potential fire hazard. Electronics like TVs, radios, and gaming consoles can experience a surge, causing them to heat up and start a fire. -Keep an eye on any flame. Avoid leaving unattended any fire in your home like a stove or candle. Do not leave an LPG open. -Check all electrical connections regularly. -Ensure that there are no obstacles in points of exit to easily go out of the house in case of an emergency.
