Jamaica — Several units from the St James Fire Department and the Sangster International Airport have now managed to bring under control, a massive bush fire near the runway at the airport.

The entire area surrounding the runway is covered by smoke.

However this has not significantly affected landing and take-off.

In the meantime, the police have closed a section of the Flanker to Montego Bay main road because of the smoke.

The lanes are also being used by fire fighters to put out the bush fire.

Fire officials say they received the call about the blaze at 5:41 p.m.
