Fire safety warning

Felix Chaudhary

Update: 3:04PM THE National Fire Authority is urging homeowners to use registered electricians when installing appliances and ensure prayer candles and associated equipment, including stoves and lamps, are handled in a safe manner.

CEO John OConnor stressed the importance of extinguishing prayer-related candles and lighting equipment and stoves before leaving home.

Candles, prayer diyas and kerosene lanterns should be placed properly in a safe place on a metal surface and must not be left unattended, he said.

Mr OConnor emphasized this after fire partially destroyed a four-bedroom house at Rifle Range in Lautoka last week.
