POLICE are still searching for a 65-year-old man in relation to the burning of the Natavora Waters Restaurant and Music Bar on the Coral Coast on Monday.

The man is believed to be the husband and father of two females who were admitted in hospital as a result of the incident.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the incident had left a 43-year-old woman and her eight-year-old daughter with serious burns.

The incident happened as a result of an alleged domestic dispute between the man and the woman.

Meanwhile, the National Fire Authority is working tirelessly to determine the cause of the fire.

NFA CEO John O'Connor said his team was working with the police.

"We may be able to get an update in the coming days on how the fire started," he said.
