Firecracker store explodes in Bulacan


The incident cause 25 casualties with one death confirmed.

On Wednesday morning, a firecracker warehouse in Bocaue, Bulacan exploded. According to the reports, it happened at McArthur Highway in Barangay (village) Binang 1st.

In an interview with Bocaue Mayor Joni Villanueva, a store named "Gonzales Fireworks" exploded at around 11:30 AM. The fire quickly spread to other firecracker stores and resulted to simultaneous explosions.

"May kalakihan (ang sunog) kaya hanggang ngayon hindi agad malapitan ng Bureau of Fire Protection. Meron pa ding maliliit na paputok na sumasabog," Villanueva said.

Initial investigations leads to the rain being the cause as it created a chemical reaction with the fireworks.

"Napalakas ng ulan, nagdulot na malamang nabasa ang paninda at kemikal, kaya ngayong umaga na umaraw, posible na ito ay nagdulot ng init sa mga paputok. Posibleng ito ang naging mitsa," she said.

Gina Gonzales, the store owner, is still responsible for the accident but some witnesses said they saw her walked out of the store.

President Rodrigo Duterte said during his presidential campaign before the elections that he also wanted to ban firecrackers nationwide as he did in Davao City when he was still its mayor to protect the Filipinos.
