Suva businessman Vinod Lal watched helplessly as years of investment and hard work went up in flames early yesterday morning  at Vatuwaqa, Suva.

The two-storey building known as Vinod’s Hiring Services Limited, on the corner of Jai Hanuman Road and Jai Ambamaa roads was completely destroyed in the massive fire.

Mr Lal, who is the director and owner of the company, was at the scene and was in a state of shock.

He declined to make any comments to the media.

The fire is believed to have started around 5am.

When the Fiji Sun team arrived at the scene at 5.30am, the building was engulfed in flames.

Four National Fire Authority fire trucks were at the scene with more than 10 firefighters trying to control the fire.

The firefighters managed to control the fire from spreading to nearby buildings. The Police and the NFA are investigating to determine the cause of the fire.
