Fiji Police are in search of an unknown person who attempted to set fire to the house of a 47-year-old woman of Valili Street, Nakasi in the weekend.
 
Fiji Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the woman was away at the Hibiscus Festival when the perpetrator tried to set the house alight using a cloth soaked in kerosene.
 
Naisoro said quick action by the neighbors resulted in the fire being extinguished, preventing any damage to the house.
 
Investigations are continuing with the search of the unknown person and the National Fire Authority will assess the incident soon.
 
The Fiji Police is issuing a stern warning to those responsible to stop what they are doing or face the full brunt of the law.
