Orion, officially the Municipality of Orion (formerly Udyong), (Tagalog: Bayan ng Orion; Kapampangan: Balen ning Orion), is a 2nd class municipality in the province of Bataan, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 56,002 people.[3]

On January 29, 2019, a massive fire burned down over 900 houses in Sitio Depensa, Barangay Kapunitan, killing 1 person, injuring 50 persons, and affecting 1,018 families, or 6,131 individuals. The blaze was attributed to children who carelessly played with matches and afterwards mistakenly tried to douse the flames with gasoline. The fire was able to spread quickly since the sitio consisted mostly of bamboo houses, most of which stored gasoline for fishing boats.[4][5]
