Fire ripped through a Haitian shanty town called the Mud in Marsh Harbour, Abaco on April 27 destroying 40 homes and leaving about 150 residents homeless in its wake.MARSH HARBOUR, Abaco -- Fire ripped through a Haitian shanty town called the Mud in Marsh Harbour, Abaco on April 27 destroying 40 homes and leaving about 150 residents homeless in its wake.

The fire erupted at about 3pm when it is reported that a child playing with matches set a bed on fire. The fire quickly engulfed the wooden home and then spread to nearby homes in a block of ramshackle houses.

The Marsh Harbour Volunteer Fire Department, assisted by Schooner Bay water trucks (each carrying 5000 gallons), Bahama Palm Shores Fire Department and Treasure Cay Fire Rescue tackled the blaze and brought the inferno under control by 7pm. Fire fighters remained in the area until late Wednesday night putting out the remaining smolderings.

The fire department faced many difficulties reaching the fire through narrow roads strewn with derelict vehicles and other items. Numerous electrical wires, which were strung from house to house and across tree limbs, were torn down as truck maneuvered trying to find better angles to attack the fire.

National Emergency Management Association (NEMA) Director, Captain Stephen Russell arrived in Marsh Harbour midday on April 29 with members of the Red Cross, Department of Social Services, Immigration and the Police to assess the damage.

Capt. Russell said they came to see the damage and to find out how they could best assist the local NEMA team. He said they stand ready to assist wherever it is needed.
