Police follow fire leads

FIJI Police Force spokeswoman Ana Naisoro has confirmed that police have established leads into a fire at the Labasa Westpac Branch this week.

"Investigations continue into the case as fire officers and police try and piece together clues at the scene to find out the cause of fire."

"The fire which broke out from the ceiling of the bank was safely put out by quick response from police and firemen in Labasa also preventing the possible burning down of a chain of shops adjoined to the bank," Ms Naisoro said.

She said it was too early to reveal more details as investigations continued.

Vendors make good profit

THE festive season has brought good tidings to food parcel sellers in Labasa who have made good profit over the past month. Vendor Vesi Rauluni said the business had been a success during this school break as more people were in the friendly town for Christmas and New Year. "We have more people around and more customers so our business has been great making good money which supports our families."

Mr Rauluni said the good income would also help parents prepare their children for school next year. Other vendors have described the festive season business as a success.
