The victims of the blaze are currently staying in the Binakayan National High School where they are being attended to by the Rural Health Unit and Municipal Social Welfare and Development office (MSWD).

“Kumakatok po kami sa inyong mga puso, kung kayo ay may extrang damit, pagkain, at mga essential needs na pwede ninyong maibigay, maaari niyo itong ipadala sa ating MSWD upang matulungan ang ating mga kababayan (We are knocking on your hearts, if you have extra clothes, food, and other essential needs that you can donate, you can send them to our MSWD to help our townmates),” Mayor Angelo G. Aguinaldo appealed in a Facebook post.

The cause of the fire that reached Task Force Alpha is still under investigation.
