Eight people are now homeless after two wooden flats were razed to the ground by a fire yesterday afternoon at Moci Place in Nadawa.

Fij’s National Fire Authority (NFA) said that they had received the fire emergency call at 4.20pm and immediately responded but discovered upon arriving at the scene that the flats were completely engulfed in flames.

NFA’s media liaison officer, Ritesh Kumar said that the fire crew extinguished the fire to prevent it from spreading to nearby houses.

“The wooden house was destroyed in the fire with all its household contents,” Kumar added.
 
NFA’s chief executive John O’Connor who was on the scene of the fire is pleading with members of the community to take extra precautionary measures.

“When we attend to fires, we sympathise with the homeowners when we see the pain they go through after the loss of their property or loved ones. The fire could have been easily avoided had extra care been taken,” O’Connor said.

This incident brings to sixty-eight (68) the total number of structural fires this year.

O’Connor is urging members of the community to change their attitude towards fire safety and not assume that a fire will not happen to them.
