Firefighters atop a water truck in Port-au-Prince, Haiti return to the city's one fire station after arriving late to an apartment fire. Heavy traffic and narrow streets prevented the crew from getting access to a blaze at a 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.
