Honduras fire – level 2

14-10-2021 15:00

Last week, a big fire started on the Honduran island of Guanaja. The fire destroyed and damaged more than 200 houses and businesses.

The fire started in the morning, and people tried to put it out. The problem was that there were no firefighters on the island, so the fire spread quickly. Luckily, nobody died in the fire, but several people were hurt. The president visited the island, and he asked local people to work together and to build the community again.

Guanaja is one of the most beautiful Honduran islands, and it depends on tourists. Tourists find it attractive for its beautiful beaches and sea life.

Difficult words: put out (to stop a fire), community (a group of people who live in the same place or who have the same ideas), to depend (to need or require).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
