Fire Victim Appeals for Fire Truck in Seine Bight

Tasha Anderson

Tasha Anderson lived literally just a few feet away from Macaria Arzu’s house that was completely destroyed. Anderson told us that she suffered very minor losses but her house is still habitable. But fire victim, Rosendo Requeña told us that the distance the fire trucks have to travel from Placencia to Seine Bight to extinguish a blaze takes away crucial time that could be spent actually fighting the fire and saving property. Requeña is hopeful that Seine Bight will soon have at least a fire truck.
