Personnel from the Jamaica Fire Brigade are currently fighting a massive blaze at the Wisynco factory in Lakes Pen, St Catherine.

The fire has been raging for more than an hour and has engulfed the entire warehouse.

"It started about 4 o'clock at the back of the warehouse and then it spread like wild fire," said one employee.

She further said up to 30 minutes after the blaze started only one fire truck had responded.

"The heat alone was awful," she said. 

According to the employee, the section of the warehouse contained a significant amounts of plastic and foam material.

She said she and her co workers were now worried about their jobs.
