Fires In the Philippines The fighting of fires in the dry sea son is a grave problem in the cities and pueblos of the Philippine Islands. House construction is light, the roofs being made from uipa palm leaves, the framework of bamboo and the sides of either nipa or sawali—a woven product of certain species of bamboo. When this material has 'been exposed contin uously to the sun for several months it becomes as inflammable as tinder. Fires that break out in the nipa dis tricts alwavs gain great headway be fore any kind of an alarm can be sent in even where there is a fire depart ment. Fires in such districts spread with great rapidity. In thickly popu lated areas it is not uncommon for a, fire to burn sovcral 'hundred houses be fore it is stopped.
