Suspected New People's Army rebels burned down heavy equipment (crane) owned by Dumlao Construction in Brgy. San Pedro, Alegria, Surigao del Norte around 9:20pm Monday, Feb. 4, 2013.

According to 30IB Phil Army Spokesperson Capt. Steve Mangabat, 10 unidentified armed men believed to be members of the Guerilla Front 16 torched down and fired the said equipment which is being used in the ongoing construction of a bridge along the national highway of Brgy.
