There is a local fire department, and they do have some water they can bring, but I think it is limited to about 500 gallons. A couple of weeks ago the main industry in town burnt down, causes unknown. It was a factory where they make US military uniforms, owned by South Koreans.

OK, I just had to stop and ponder US military uniforms made by Hondurans, owned by Koreans, located in Siguatepeque. A friend of ours works, or worked, there. I am not sure if or when she will go back to work. Regardless, the fire department could not handle a building in the middle of the city, so battling fire on a cliff is well beyond their capabilities. The fire department did come to work on our local fire on Saturday, but they were called to a bigger fire somewhere else and have not returned.

Third world problems. :)
