NO jobs will be affected as a result of the fire that destroyed the Land Transport Authority office in Labasa yesterday morning.

LTA CEO Naisa Tuinaceva said all workers would return to work on Tuesday.

"Right now we have a contingency plan in place and everyone will be back at work by next week," he said. "All workers will still be at work and no one will be affected."

The CEO said they were working on a plan that would ensure the LTA services to the public were not disrupted.

"Our main concern now is to get our services back to normal and we have this long weekend to work on that.

"We are planning right now as a team on how we can handle and continue our services without any disruption."

Mr Tuinaceva said the damage on the LTA office was yet to be calculated.

"We will leave investigations to police and NFA and let them deal with the case.

"At this stage it is too early to comment on the cause of the fire or the damage caused by the early morning fire.

"Right now we are assessing the value of the damage caused by the fire and probably know an amount by tomorrow (today)."

He is expected to be in Labasa today.

Police have set up a special taskforce to investigate the fire.

Northern police head Senior Superintendent Naulumatua Lutunacaucau confirmed the team would handle the LTA incident.

"We have started preliminary investigations into the case.

"At this stage we are also waiting for the NFA report that will help us with our investigation. Once we receive that then we will take it on from there."
