The fire bureau has conducted flushing at the drainage system because of the high level of diesel fumes observed in the past few days.

Senior Fire Officer 2 Hoover Moral, of Makati BFP District III said that they are still monitoring the area near the gasoline station even if the fumes are no longer strong.

“The gas traces already lowered. The fumes are not as strong as before,” he said.

Evangelista Street was opened before Sunday noon.

The local government of Makati City will meet with the gasoline station owners on Monday, Nov. 5, in Makati City.

Mayor Abigail Binay reportedly directed Acting City Administrator Atty. Michael Camina to schedule the meeting at 1 p.m. to remind the owners to regularly inspect their fuel lines and tanks and to immediately report to the local government any untoward incident.
