A boy sits on a pavement outside their burnt home following an overnight fire that razed a slum dwellers community Tuesday, March 3, 2015 in Manila, Philippines. No casualties were reported in the 9-hour fire that razed more than a thousand homes and rendered at least 3,000 families. March is declared "Fire Prevention Month" throughout the country. (AP Photo/Bullit Marquez)In this photo by Bullit Marquez, a boy sits on pavement while his family retrieves items from their burned home Tuesday following an overnight fire that destroyed a slum-dwellers community in Manila, Philippines. No casualties were reported in the 9-hour fire that burned more than a thousand homes and left at least 3,000 families homeless. The Bureau of Fire and Protection was still investigating the cause of the fire. But in Manila's poorest neighborhoods, fires often are caused by poor wiring and spread quickly because firefighters have difficulty maneuvering among the densely packed shanties. March is Fire Prevention Month, when Philippine authorities urge people to be vigilant against fires.
