Tarlac Acting Mayor Mendoza denies sabotage claims after fires
Tarlac Acting Mayor Genaro Mendoza denied rumors of sabotage after three consecutive fire incidents hit the city, a Manila Times report said.
A part of the Tarlac City public market was razed by a fire on Sunday, April 16.
There were also minor fires in the city hall’s Treasury and Tourism offices last week.
“We are confident that our fire department is doing its job to ensure that no major fire could hit any of our establishments and cost lives,” Mendoza said.
The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) said the market fire was caused by electrical overload while he fires at the Treasury and Tourism offices were blamed on faulty electrical connections.
