Fire De A Town was released in 1975 by Jamaican singer Novelette Barnett, also known as Nora Dean.

The song was produced by Sonia Pottinger, one of the few female reggae producers at the time.

The lyrics of the song describe a situation of violence and chaos in the city, where fire, blood and guns are the main characters.

The song is a social critique of the political and police system of Jamaica, which generated conflicts and repression among the popular classes.

Fire de a town is a song that reflects the historical reality of its time, but also conveys a universal message of resistance and hope.
