Dozens of business operators armed themselves with water buckets and worked relentlessly to put out a fire which burnt the inner sections of the L and J bar, located on the Oneness Plaza, in Montego Bay, St James.
Reports are that about 12:30 pm, on Saturday, October 27, patrons and operators at the establishment which is located off Heart Street, and Barnett Street, were sent into shock after several explosions were heard coming from the directions of the Game boxes.
The boxes immediately burst into flames, and persons were sent running from the building.
The Fire Department was summoned, but other business operators in the surroundings armed themselves with water buckets and fought the blaze.
When the firefighters reached the location, they only carried out cooling down operations, as the business operators have already joined hands and put out the blaze.
The fire is said to have started due to an electrical shortage, and the extent of the damage is not yet known.
