Firefighter Will Mondesir (at left) leaves a fire-damaged home in Port-au-Prince, Haiti as people gather to watch the owner toss out his damage possessions. Heavy traffic and narrow streets prevented the 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.
