Fire burns Frez house

LAOAG CITY, Jan. 1—A fire sparked by suspected firecracker gutted the abandoned house of the Frez family at Brgy. 16, this city during the New Year’s eve celebration last night. The Frez family now lives in Manila. Lawyer Cedie Corpuz, said fellow neighbors tried to contain the blaze using fire extinguishers but they failed. Firemen said the house was partly roof less.
