Three fire units - two from the Half-Way Tree station and one from Trench Town - responded to the fire that was observed generally at a section of the grounds near to Jamaica House Basic School on the bordering state property.
Teachers at the educational institution said the blaze did not affect the school’s operation, as it occurred after classes were dismissed for the day.
However, smoke inhalation issues were evident on the location of the school, as some teachers were seen covering their noses.
The police said the development did not seriously affect activities at offices on the state properties.
