Two units from the York Park fire station in Kingston are at this moment attempting to put out a massive fire in Riverton City, St Andrew.
Several residents gathered at the scene say several homes have been engulfed in thick black smoke as a mound of scrap near the homes along the bank of the Sandy Gully in the area was set ablaze.
So far one two-bedroom board house has been damaged by the fire. The owner, Peter Davis, claims the fire which came within about 10 feet of the house, scorched his residence and destroyed its contents.
He says a section of the structure had to be torn down to retrieve some of the household items, however, he says all the items were destroyed.
No one was in the house at the time of blaze.
