Danger averted as fire rips through crowded prison

A fire tore through an overcrowded maximum-security prison in Cameroon’s port city of Douala on Thursday.

This led to the hospitalization of three prisoners with serious burns, a local fire chief said.
Firefighters, backed up by the Police, were able to contain the blaze and stop it spreading beyond New Bell jail, which sits in a densely populated neighborhood of the commercial capital, close to the central market.
