COURTS Fiji Limited has estimated the cost of damage to its Western Division warehouse in Lautoka at between $3million and $4m.

Company CEO Priyaraj Lakmal Munasinghe said while the company had moved to temporary storerooms since the inferno, a definite cost of damage had yet to be confirmed.

"We don't know yet the exact figure but it is quite a considerable amount," he said.

"We are looking at a cost between $3million and $4million."

He said the destroyed warehouse was in a rented lot.

"In the meantime we have looked at other options.

"We have moved our offices and the storage area to other areas while we look at a more permanent solution."

The CEO said staff members at the warehouse had also been transferred to other Courts Fiji centres.

Meanwhile, the National Fire Authority CEO John O'Connor said the fire on Daniva St was caused by an electrical fault.
