KINGSTON, Jamaica — Firefighters are now battling a massive blaze at the Coroner's Court, which hosts the Family Court and a remedial school on Duke Street in downtown Kingston.
Public Relations Director at the Jamaica Fire Brigade Emilio Ebanks told OBSERVER ONLINE that the origin of the fire cannot be ascertained at this time, but that firefighters are working to put out the blaze. "We have to carry out the cooling down operations and then start investigations. We have investigators now on the scene and we'll be going through the rest of the building for the rest of the night into tomorrow," he said. OBSERVER ONLINE was also informed that a section of the government printery has been destroyed. It is not known if anyone was injured. More information later.
