The St Ann Fire Department has estimated the cost of damage from a fire at the Grand Bahia Principe Hotel in Runaway Bay, St Ann, this morning as approximately J$15 million.

No one was injured in the fire which started sometime after two Wednesday morning.

A spokesperson at the department said a call came in at 2:28 a.m. that a fire was at the hotel.

Three units from Brown’s Town and St Ann’s Bay responded and put out the fire, which was confined to the roof of a section of one of the towers at the hotel.
