Three people died during a massive fire on Church Street in Downtown Kingston last night.

Public Relations Officer for the Fire Department, Emilio Ebanks, says they received a call at 10:55pm, informing them of the fire at number-80 Church Street.

The police have not yet confirmed the identities of the victims.

Mr. Ebanks says despite fire fighters’ best efforts, it was already too late to save them.
