Unidentified men set the heavy equipment- owned by a construction company there, on fire.

According to the Maramag Municipal Police Station, two men riding a motorcycle were seen approaching a parked backhoe at P-10, San Ramon, Base Camp in the said town.

The suspects allegedly lit and threw a bottle of gasoline into the backhoe.

The two men immediately fled from the scene.

Police have already conducted a pursuit operation against the suspects and the Bureau of Fire Protection-Maramag also responded to the fire.

Meanwhile, a backhoe—also called a rear actor or back actor—is a type of excavating equipment, or digger, consisting of a digging bucket on the end of a two-part articulated arm.

It is typically mounted on the back of a tractor or front loader, the latter forming a “backhoe loader.”

The section of the arm closest to the vehicle is known as the boom, while the section that carries the bucket is known as the dipper (or dipper-stick).
