Firefighter Milan Miranda rests at Paco Fire Station in Paco, Manila, Philippines, May 4, 2018. Miranda is set to retire next year after battling blazes for 32 years. He said he was inspired by his father and uncle to join the ranks, despite the dangers. "Every fire is a challenge, especially when we lack equipment like breathing apparatus so we inhale smoke and endure the heat, risking our health and lives," Miranda said. "But this is the career given to me by God." REUTERS/Erik De Castro SEARCH "PHILIPPINES FIRE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
