FSC Rarawai Administration Building Destroyed By Fire

The Fiji Sugar Corporation Rarawai Mill administration office was destroyed by a fire early Monday morning.

This was confirmed by Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro.

“A concrete building, the property of FSC Ba was completely destroyed yesterday (Monday morning),” she said.

“Estimated cost of damaged worth was around $150,000 however the cause of fire is yet to be ascertained as we are awaiting the NFA (National Fire Authority) report.”

Fiji Sugar Corporation executive chairman Abdul Khan said the building had housed the mill general manager’s office and the accounts section.

Mr Khan confirmed that the fire began at around 1.30am to 2am on Monday morning.

“It impacts about ten staff that are actually housed in that particular building, so we’ve temporarily housed them elsewhere to continue with their work,” Mr Khan said.

He said the fire did not affect the mill in terms of overall operations.

“As far as the mill is concerned it continues to run, this does not affect our mill or the crushing or our processing and manufacturing of sugar,” he said.

“There were no injuries, thank God for that but my understanding is that the fire brigade is carrying out investigations to determine the cause of the fire as well as the Police just in case there was any criminal element such as arson.”
