The family of four people who died in a Ba fire are awaiting the post mortem before funeral arrangements could be made.

A spokesperson for the family, Kerrie Datt, said they were hoping the post mortem would be done soon.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the post mortem would be carried out this week.

Ms Naisoro said police were also waiting for the report from the National Fire Authority.

Amele Nacula, 53, her daughter Alka Artika Dutt 23, and Mrs Nacula’s two cousins, known only as Sanaila and Ropate, both aged 53, died in the fire at Valele. Their three bedroom corrugated iron house was completely gutted.

Ms Nacula’s son, Upen, 26, who was also in the house, managed to escape.

However, he could not do anything to save the four.
