QUICK action by firefighters on Saturday night prevented a major disaster.
Firefighters arrived promptly at the Manohan Building in Nasinu and extinguished a fire that started in a restaurant, which was partially destroyed.
"We received several phone calls from security officers and other members of the public who were there and our fire teams from the Valelevu and Suva fire stations responded to the calls," NFA spokesman Ritesh Kumar said.
"The restaurant was closed at the time of the fire and firefighters had to break the door and a window to gain access to the restaurant."
In a separate incident, a family living at Buiduna Rd in Verata, Nausori, are homeless after a fire destroyed their four-bedroom house last week.
A statement from National Fire Authority said it received a call at its Nausori station.
Firefighters used water from fire trucks and a fire hydrant to put out the fire and stop it from spreading to two other homes.
Authority CEO John O'Connor said no one was injured as the family managed to escape safely.
"NFA's investigations are underway to determine the cause of this fire incident," he said.
He said the authority was advising members of the community to take extra care to avoid fire incidents.
"We all deal with fire ignition sources at home every day like matches, candles, prayer diyas, electrical appliances and during cooking and it is really important that members of the community pay more attention to home fire safety and take extra care to avoid a fire.
"Homeowners must also always check that all fire ignition sources are put out completely before leaving their home or going to bed."
