Update: 11:20AM A MAN is in a state of shock after losing his house in a fire a short while ago.

The three-bedroom wooden house at Korociriciri in Nausori was destroyed with its contents.

Owner, John Naitini said he was in his farm about 20 metres away with his four-year-old son when he noticed the fire in a bedroom.
