Firefighters spent hours early this morning battling a blaze at a warehouse of Cool Oasis petrol station in Rio Nuevo, St Mary.




According to an eyewitness, firemen were called to the scene around 2 a.m. after employees noticed smoke coming from the warehouse.



The fire was restricted to the main building.



However, it posed a larger threat go the adjacent gas station after the fire trucks twice ran out of water.



Sources say it took more than an hour and a half to get a response from 911 to report the emergency.
