Honduras: Nearly 200 Christian Inmates in Prison Blaze

The following news report is from CBNNews and we would just ask for your prayers today for the families for all of those lost, and for God's peace to overwhelm the families and friends of all the victims.  This is a tragedy and so we request your prayers.

A massive fire in a Honduran prison has killed at least 358 prisoners, many trapped in their cells, yelling for help as the flames engulfed them.

The tragedy took place Tuesday night in the Comayagua farm prison some 90 miles north of the capital, Tegucigalpa. It was the world's deadliest prison fire in more than a century.  Full story here.
