Sections of Jack’s Hill in St Andrew are on fire this evening.

The Jamaica Fire Brigade has confirmed six separate bush fires in the area.

Emilio Ebanks, public relations officer for the Brigade,  says a unit has been dispatched and others will be diverted to the area as they become available.

Ebanks says it is too early to state definitively the cause of the fires.

However, he says the dry conditions currently affecting the island are likely to have contributed to the blaze.
