#1326: Eyewitness Reports fire is raging in Jeremie (fwd)


An eyewitness, contacted by telephone, reported that fire was raging in 
Jeremie - southwestern part of Haiti - on the early evening of Friday 
December 10, 1999. The fire seems to have started from the area of the 
penitentiary along the shoreline and move past the pier towards the east and 
moving south towards the Market Square burning houses and business 
establishments on its way. The problem is that there are no firefighters to 
contain it. The people seem to be helpless to protect their property. Does 
anyone on the list know about it? As reported, it appears that a lot of 
people will be homeless, and that it is a major catastrophe in progress.
