Police will question the parents of the 14-month-old baby who died in a house fire in Korovuto, Nadi on Friday night.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said they are waiting for the post mortem result of the baby before taking further action.

The baby died at the scene after she was trapped inside the house.

It is alleged that her 21-year-old mother had gone to the shop locking the house doors from outside leaving the deceased and her other siblings aged 2 and 4 unsupervised.

Naisoro said the neighbours managed to save the children by breaking the louver blades and pulling them out.

The two children are still under observation at the Nadi hospital after receiving major burns to their bodies.
