Firefighters are currently battling a blaze at the Tower Street Adult Correctional facility in downtown Kingston.

The fire which began shortly after noon, is contained to the George Davis Centre, a section that houses the mentally ill, according to a correctional officer.

So far three units have responded to the blaze that is sending a huge plume of smoke into nearby communities.

The inmates are said to be relocated to an unaffected area of the prison.
