Fire: A 2 bedroom corrugated iron dwelling house was completely destroyed by fire at Kilikali Settlement, Nepani,. Fire started from one of the bedrooms where a 5yrs old girl burnt an empty egg tray. No casualties. House not insured. Cost of damage is $15,000.00.

In another Fire incident on Thursday night at Vatulaulau, Ba, a 3 bedroom corrugated iron and timber house of a 58 year old businessman was completely destroyed in a fire with its contents including assorted jewelries and cash. Also destroyed in the fire is a Hino truck, a Toyota Hilux 4 wheel drive and a Toyota Corolla car which were all parked outside the house.

There was no electricity in the house due to the current power blackout in most areas in the western division.

Whilst police forensics and fire inspectors form NFA are trying to ascertain the cause of fire, we would like to remind members of the community especially to those living in an area where there is still power blackout to be very mindful of where they place candles and other sources of lights like kerosene lamps and benzene lamps. They should not be placed near other combustibles items such as curtains, plastics, mats, and anything else that can easily catch fire.
Fire safety must be observed at all times.
