Firefighters of Port-au-Prince (24/28)

< Prev Next >
People watch as a resident tosses out fire-damaged possessions from a two-story home in Port-auPrince, Haiti. Heavy traffic and narrow streets prevented a crew of firefighters from getting its water truck to the blaze, 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.
