Great Fjre Rampages
Densely-populated San Miguel
Fanned by high winds and aided by low water pressure in fire hydrants, fire raged through
three densely-populated tenement blocks in one of the most inflammable sections of Pan
ama City this afternoon.
The holocaust destroyed at least 12 wooden houses in three blocks in the San Miguel borough, just across the
railroad tracks from Shaler Road.
Scores of persons were hospitalized. No deaths were reported by early afternoon.
An estimated 3000 have been left homeless, bereft of everything they own in the world.
Distraught parents sought their lost and frightened children in the confusion.
Canal Zone employes who live in the area or have relatives there dashed to the scene in great anxiety.
Radio calls were issued for every doctor and nurse available in Panama. Blood donors were wanted.
Every rig but two in the Panama Fire Department was fighting the blaze. Pacific-side Canal Zone Fire Department equipment join joined

Firemen fought desperately to
prevent a gas station from blowing
up. There are 15,000 gallons of gas
in its tanks.
There was talk of dynamiting
sections of the area to prevent the
spread of th;e flames.
Scenes of near-panic swept the
area as dwellers in fire-threatened
tenements tossed their belongings
into the street, or carted them off

the area to control the crowds.

The crackling of flames was un

the roaring outbreak were taken
to Santo Tomas hospital.
The fire is reported to have bro

and to have rapidly spread to an
adjoining bar known as c.i.u.
The area is composed principally

when Robinson was riding high
and Carmen was trying to get

his foe lightly.
