UPDATED: Lanao del Sur ancestral heritage house razed


November 4, 2019

MARAWI CITY: A beautiful torogan (an ancestral cultural heritage house) owned by the family of former Bubong mayor Hj. Ali Munder in Barangay Montia-an of Lanao del Sur’s municipality of Bubong, razed to the ground on Monday afternoon.

There was no casualty reported during the fire incident and the total cost of damages is still to be estimated.

The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) said the fire broke out at around 3:40 PM and was declared under control at around 5{03 PM.
BFP said the cause of the fire is still unknown but a resident said it might be due to lightning that apparently hit the house as seen from a distance that might be associated with the Tornado that hit Marawi.

There is also a report that it was due to a burning candle that cause the fire.

The house is a popular cultural heritage in the municipality that was constructed forty-four years ago by the former mayor Munder.
Residents said the heritage house should have been saved from burning if the town has a fire-truck or if there was one in nearby municipalities. But as in most towns of the province, there is no fire-truck available.
Municipal mayor Yusoph Munder of the Mundir family thanked those who responded alongside with the Bubong Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Office (MDRRMO) and the Municipal Police Station (MPS-Bubong) such as the Bureau of Fire Protection-Provincial Capitol, BFP-Ditsaan Ramain and Saguiaran, PDRRMO-Lanao del Sur, MDRRMO-Ditsaan Ramain, and all the good people of Bubong who helped during the incident.
