THE National Fire Authority is urging members of the public to practise fire safety and to be mindful when lighting decoration lights and other sources of fire this festive season.
The NFA received two reports over the weekend after fires completely destroyed two dwelling houses in the Northern and the Western divisions.
In Wailevu in Labasa, three families are homeless after a fire destroyed wooden housing flats accommodating three families. Investigations are in progress to determine the cause of the fire.
An NFA statement said family members residing in all three flats in Labasa and the family in Lautoka were at home when the fire started but they managed to escape unharmed.
