Massive fire destroys Lucea's largest supermarketThursday, June 15, 2017
HANOVER, Jamaica — A massive fire last night gutted a large two-storey building, which houses several businesses in Lucea, Hanover.
Fire fighters are still on location performing cooling down operations.
The fire engulfed the concrete building, which houses a supermarket and haberdashery among other businesses. The supermarket is the largest in the town.
Early reports are that a unit from the Lucea Fire Department responded to a call about 11:32 pm.
However, the extent of the blaze as well as challenges with the town's water supply, led to assistance being sought from the neighbouring parishes of Westmoreland and St James.
A unit from the Negril station and another from the Freeport station responded.
Traffic is currently being diverted to another section of the town.
