Fire investigators are still unable to determine the cause of a fire which destroyed three business places along Camp Road, in St Andrew, on Sunday leaving damage estimated at up to $20 million.

An auto-parts store, Everyday Auto Parts, was gutted while a barber shop and a restaurant were badly damaged in the fire.

Public relations officer at the Jamaica Fire Brigade Emeleo Ebanks says the investigators are probing how the fire started.

He says investigators will be conducting more interviews today to determine the cause.

It is reported that the fire started inside the auto parts store and according to fire officials it quickly spread to the adjoining businesses.

A member of the family that owns the auto parts store, Claudine Scott, told The Gleaner that the business has been operating for more than 12 years and the fire has left at least 14 persons without jobs.
