The Jamaica Fire Brigade says it has not determined what caused several workers at the Queen's Warehouse in Kingston to get sick yesterday.  

Emeleo Eubanks, the brigade's public relations officer, says a group of workers started vomiting after moving some barrels. 

He says they got the call just after midday yesterday. 

The warehouse on Spanish Town Road is operated by the Jamaica Customs Department.
