The fire threatens nearby businesses and houses.
A morgue was caught on fire but the Morant Bay Fire Brigade was able to put it out. However, a car that was parked at garage also caught on fire and was damaged.
The Jamaica Fire Brigade reported last night that the fire was inaccessible to them and has spread to the hills of St. Thomas.
Ezra Morris, District Officer at the Morant Bay Fire Station states that the fire is currently under observation, as they are limited in resources to fight this fire which has escaped them. He said they exhausted the length that they use and, were in middle of the fire – fighting the fire – but they cannot access the bounds to where the fire has spread.
