BONTOC INFERNO — The fire that totally gutted 24 commercial and residential structures and partially burned 10 other structures, including vehicles in the wee hours of April 11, has ignited the true spirit of bayanihan, or locally known among Ifontoks as “og-ogfo”, as people from all walks of life came forward to volunteer their time and resources to help the victims back on their feet. — Jovi Lopez and Mountain Province PIO
