Firefighters of Port-au-Prince (26/28)

< Prev Next >
Residents watch as firefighter Will Mondesir checks out a fire-damaged home in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Heavy traffic and narrow streets prevented the fire crew from getting its water truck to a blaze at the two-story home, so the owners had to put it out themselves with water buckets. A few dozen under-equipped firefighters are tasked with providing fire service to a damaged city of over two million people.
