A major fire incident is currently destroying many colonial houses and other historic buildings in Cap Haitian, Haiti's second largest city. The fire occurred in the historic quarter Downtwon of the city in Rue6J.

The fire is still ongoing and its cause as well as the number of possible victims are not yet known.  Also, there are no firefighters present at this time, citizens are the ones doing their best to put out the raging flames.

This is the third fire incident to have happened across the country just this month, last week a major public market was destroyed by a fire incident which police said they are still investigating, although nothing has ever came out of these investigations.
