Electrical fault cause of office fire

AN electrical fault was the cause of the fire that destroyed the LTA office in Labasa early this year.

LTA chief executive Naisa Tuinaceva said the National Fire Authority confirmed the cause of fire as an electrical fault.

Mr Tuinaceva was in Labasa yesterday to discuss with his staff plans to rebuild the office.

"However, we are also holding talks with our insurance companies and straight after this the construction of the new office will take place," he said.

"The new office will be built at the same spot of the burnt office.

"I held talks with my staff in the North regarding their support and allegiance to the objectives of the authority this year and that is to ensure Fiji's roads are safe and accident-free."

Mr Tuinaceva also visited bus routes outside Labasa to monitor the condition of buses operating in the area.

"This will give me a fair idea of how safe the public in the North is when travelling in public transport.

"It will only ensure that the travelling public is safe when out on our roads whether they be in rural or urban areas."
