Neighbouring roads have also been closed and traffic is being diverted.

Emergency services were called just after 2:15 pm this afternoon.

Nearby residents have been warned to close their windows because of the smoke that's covered town.

The Department of Growth, Housing and Environment says motorists parked in the nearby Sand Street car park are able to exit, but not enter the multi-storey because of the incident.

York Street, Broad Street and Charing Cross all remain closed - but Seale Street, Sand Street and Castle Street have since re-opened.

Jersey Fire and Rescue say they've begun investigations into the cause of the fire, which is not yet known.

Pizzeria Romana has posted a message on social media after the fire.
