By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - A fireman died this afternoon fighting a warehouse fire in France Field in Colon. Another five firemen have been injured, and firemen continue to fight the fire. I just saw some news footage on Channel 13, and they were using a guy (in civilian clothes) to drive a backhoe in an attempt to remove the burning materials from the warehouse. The driver had no breathing air or protective equipment, and there was only one truck on the scene with low water pressure. Not good.
