An elderly farmer of Mataso, Ra, was left homeless after his house was razed to ashes yesterday afternoon.
Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the house was vacant at the time of the incident as the owner was visiting his son who lived in the same Yalani settlement.
The two-bedroom wooden house caught fire at around 1pm yesterday.
Ms Naisoro said the estimated cost of damage was $23,619, with the cause of the fire still undetermined.
She said it was the eleventh house fire case received by Police during this month alone.
