THE National Fire Authority attended to three separate house fire incidents from Tuesday night, including one on Kikau St in Samabula, Suva yesterday.

NFA received the emergency call around 11am. The house was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived at the scene.

They used water pumped by four fire trucks from a nearby fire hydrant to extinguish the fire.

NFA is investigating to determine the cause of the fire.

In Tavua, quick action by the NFA Tavua fire team on Tuesday night averted a major fire incident at Ralulu St in Tavua Town and saved a mother and daughter trapped inside the home.

In Navakai settlement in Nadi on the same night, the NFA Nadi fire team saved a three bedroom corrugated iron and timber structured house.

NFA CEO John O'Connor said fire safety should be maintained at all times.

"Fire is one of the most dangerous disasters which can happen at our homes and in our properties. It is very important that all members of the community and family members take extra care to avoid a fire from happening at home and properties."
