House Fire In Nadi Leaves Three Homeless

Three people are homeless after they lost their home in a fire at Kerebula Settlement in Nadi last night.

At 7.40 pm, the Nadi Fire Station was alerted of a fire incident and the fire team responded immediately.

Upon arrival at the scene at 7.45 pm, the fire team saw a corrugated iron and partially concrete house on fire.

The team quickly used one delivery of water from the fire truck to extinguish the fire.

It is believed the owner of the house was away with his wife and his son was alone at home when the fire had started.

Information gathered revealed that two years ago, the owner had lost his home in a fire in the same place and had rebuilt the house that was destroyed in the fire last night.

NFA CEO, Mr. Puamau Sowane said it is shocking to see that despite many reminders and awareness by NFA, we still see so many homes destroyed in fire.

“Despite many awareness, NFA still sees so many homes being destroyed in fire. We urge the public to adhere to the messages that are given out by NFA and to take precautionary measures in and around their homes to prevent any fire from happening.

“People should not have a careless attitude towards fire safety in homes. They should be observant of all electrical wiring in their homes, use of electrical appliances, and mindful of any cooking in the kitchen.”

“Adhering to simple fire safety measures can save people their years of hard work and memories lost in the fire,” he added.

No injuries were reported in the fire incident.

Fire investigation is underway to determine the cause of the above fire incident.
