Fiji’s National Fire Authority has urged caution after a fire partially destroyed a three-bedroom house in Solovi, Nadi last night.

No one was injured in the incident believed to have been caused by a lit diya.

At the time of the fire, the owner of the house was watching television in the sitting room when he noticed fire coming from one of the bedrooms.

NFA Nadi was able to extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading to the two bedrooms.

NFA acting chief executive Aseri Radrodro reiterates to members of the public to be more cautious especially after prayer sessions, to ensure that prayer rooms are not left unattended and they must ensure that prayer diyas are put out completely after prayer.

This is the 106th structural fire in 2011 compared to 216 recorded last year.
