St Mary has again been rocked by tragedy as three persons reportedly died in a fire at a nightclub in Trinity in Port Maria on Thursday morning.
The victims have not yet been identified, and firefighters are still at the scene.
Initial reports are that about 3 am, residents saw fire coming from the nightclub and alerted police and fire personnel.
Two fire units from the Port Maria and Ocho Rios Fire Department responded to the blaze.
The cause of the fire is not yet known.
A large crowd is now gathered at the scene.
It is the second major tragedy to hit Port Maria residents in as many weeks, following last week's gruesome killing of Neville Tucker, otherwise called 'Syrup', of Rectory Street in the town. Tucker was chopped to death and his house set ablaze with his body inside.
