Fiji’s National Fire Authority is reiterating the need for members of the public to take extra precautionary measures following the latest house fire at Rara Sub Division in Lajonia, Labasa early this morning.

NFA Labasa received the fire emergency call at 0040hrs and immediately responded.
Upon arrival at 0049hrs the fire crew saw the house fully engulfed in flames, a statement from NFA said.

Investigations are underway to determine the cause of the fire.

No injuries were recorded in the house fire which brings to sixty (60) the total number of structural fires this year.

NFA’s chief executive, John O’Connor is also urging the members of the community to always check that all fire ignition sources in the house like candles, stoves, lamps, mosquito coils and prayer diyas are out completely before leaving their home or going to bed to avoid the risks of fires.

“We hope that members of the community take heed of our advice and exercise good housekeeping at home to avoid unnecessary fire incidents from happening,” he said.
