Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management officer-in-charge, Adrian Sedillo, said he already contacted the Protected Area Management Board of the Balinsasayao Twin Lakes PAMB and other concern agencies, and sent a team to assess the situation.

The Balinsasayao Twin Lakes Farmers Association president, Rico Mier, earlier asked local government units to help them control the fire, considering the risk involved with the prolonged El Niño. .moremoremore
