Rum will be available
Liquor company J Wray and Nephew Limited says last night’s fire will not affect the supply of rum.
Sections of the company’s property on Spanish Town Road in Kingston were reduced to rubble following the massive blaze which started just after 5:30 p.m.
General Manager of the Corporate Affairs Division, Greta Bogues said the fire did not impact the warehouses used to store its rum products.
She said the company is yet to begin its assessment of the damage as up to late this afternoon the fire fighters were still conducting cooling down operations.
She said the area damaged was insured.
In the meantime, Ms Bogues said Wray and Nephew has begun to provide assistance to employees whose livelihoods have been affected by the fire.
