Burn victim heals

EIGHT-year-old Vikatoria Kolinisau is still in Australia receiving medical treatment but her condition is improving, according to West police media officer Naina Ragigia.

Vikatoria suffered 38 per cent burns when the restaurant she was in was razed in a blaze about a month ago.

Her mother was also involved in the incident and lost her life after succumbing to 60 per cent burns.

Meanwhile, Mrs Ragigia said 65-year-old father Eliki Suka is still on the run and the police were doing their best to locate him.

"The hunt is still on and the $1000 reward is still available for anyone who provides us with the correct information on Mr Suka's whereabouts," she said.

Police believe that Suka has information regarding the fire that destroyed the Natavora Water Bar and Restaurant in Korolevu on December 23.

Ms Kolinisau and her 40-year-old mother were suffered burns.

Meanwhile, Acting Police Commissioner Ravi Narayan was in Lautoka yesterday for the Western Division fourth quarter medal parade.
