    A gasoline distribution center in Puerto Rico still is burning after two days after an explosion. This is a chemical fire. Does Puerto Rico Fireman Department is fully prepared to counter attack this chemical fire? It seems that Puerto Rico does not have an industry on petro chemicals since the representatives to this company have not show up. Places as Alaska, Texas, etc. in the mainland have the manpower and the chemical needed. What it is done to control the fire and to turn it off? The flames are shooting into the sky over San Juan but the island is populated by over 4 million Americans who should be entitle to and emergency service situation I hope that the CNN crew will have a chance to find information. Over 24% of the population in the island is composed of Persons with Disabilities. Certainly an account on the patient and citizens on the island has not being taken seriously. Who will take these concerns?
