INVESTIGATIONS into the cause of an inferno that razed Courts Fiji Limited's warehouse in Lautoka last week are continuing.

Police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia said they were working closely with officials from the Fiji Electricity and National Fire authorities.

"At the time, we are not able to make any statement but investigations are ongoing," she said.

Courts Fiji Ltd chief executive officer PL Munasinghe had earlier said investigations into the cause of the fire were being conducted by the NFA and insurance assessors.

"We are awaiting a report from the NFA," he said.

"The building belonged to an external landlord. We are currently in the process of tabulating the loss of stock and contents.

"There will be some disruptions to operations but we are hopeful of normalising operations within a month or so."
