A 43-year-old farmer in Sigatoka lost everything after his uninsured 4-bedroom house was razed to the ground by a fire last night.

Fiji Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said the cause of fire that ravaged the timber and partly concrete house in Lokia is still unknown.
 
No casualties were recorded. The estimated cost of damage currently stands at $200k.

This is the second residential fire within three days after a 57-year-old watchman of Narewa in Rakiraki also lost all his belongings Sunday when his uninsured corrugated iron and timber home was burnt down to ground.

The causes of both fires are still unknown and investigations continue.
