Two Iqaluit firefighters sit on the frozen ground as they continue to spray water onto the frozen remains of the Creekside rowhouse block in downtown Iqaluit, which continued to smoulder during the morning of Feb. 27. The City of Iqaluit issued an urgent call for blankets, towels, personal hygiene items, clothes, especially mitts, hats, socks, and boys' clothes to be delivered to the Nunavut Research Institute. Among the homeless: 53 children aged five months to 18 years and scores of adults.  (PHOTO BY SARAH ROGERS)
