A seven bedroom house at Kula Street in Samabula, Suva was partially burned in an early morning fire today.

Quick response from the National Fire Authority firefighters prevented the fire from spreading to nearby homes and saved the fire from extending to the entire portion of the house.

Michael Prasad, the son of the house owner  told FijiLive that the fire started from a room on the top flat which was more of used as a storeroom.

He said the room contained all their electronic gadgets and books.

"Only four members of our family were present in the house at the time of the incident as the other eight had left for work and school and luckily no one sustained any injuries," he said.

“I only realized that something was wrong when things started to blow up and I saw smoke coming out from everywhere."

He said his older brother who was in the washroom ran outside the house naked while the rest of them were sleeping, shouting “fire, fire” but since he was in the washroom downstairs, he wouldn’t have possibly known that there was a fire upstairs.

NFA is still investigating on the cause of fire at the scene.
