My apartment is a fish-maggot hell-world.

My fridge broke. Turns out the terrible smell was because my roommate left some fish in there. For a week. I need to get the smell out of my house.

HOW DO I GET THE SMELL OUT OF MY HOUSE?
It smells like dead, rotten, disgusting fish in the apartment and up the hallway and down the stairs. The smell is everywhere. Febreeze et al. just makes it smell like floral dead fish.
The fridge broke about 6 days ago. We took all the stuff out, except for, inexplicably, the fish in the freezer. It has been evacuated. The fridge is totally dead and on the balcony, will be hauled away at some point.
Important! I am living in Central Africa and I do not have access to the vast majority of consumer goods. But if you tell me to cover my floor in vinegar and baking soda and then dance around on one foot depending on the position of the stars, believe me, I will do it.
