A man wades in a polluted river as he salvages belongings after homes caught fire at Malibay in Pasay city, metro Manila July 25, 2013. More than 500 families are left homeless after a fire from an undetermined origin razed 250 shanties in Pasay city on Wednesday, local media reported. Firefighters had a hard time controlling the blaze because the houses were made of light materials which quickly spread due to strong winds. REUTERS/Romeo Ranoco
