Apartment Content Fire

Safety & SecurityYesterday I received an email from Matt, the webmaster of The Panama Report asking about a couple of apartment fires in the area around Via Veneto and Via Argentina. In Panama most of the structures are made from reinforced concrete but content fires are common. Matt took a couple of pictures on the fly and sent them to me. This fire was on the first floor and was apparently going pretty good at one point. Remember this article about the guys who were trapped on the 19th floor? This fire was apparently caused by an electrical short, all of the damage in this fire was caused by the contents of the apartment and nothing of the structure burned. It's a good idea to have smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and fire insurance for the contents of your home or apartment. And thanks for the photo, Matt.
