Firemen to the rescue

THE National Fire Authority managed to contain a restaurant fire at Nabua in Suva on Tuesday morning.

The fire is believed to have started from the kitchen of the Friendly Fastfood Restaurant.

Witnesses and nearby residents said they saw flames from the restaurant and alerted the NFA.

In a statement, the authority said it saved the restaurant, the row of shops and other residential houses adjacent to it.

Authority CEO John O'Connor said they received a call at 6.52am on Tuesday and upon arrival at 6.57am, the team saw smoke and flames coming out of the kitchen.

"The fire teams used deliveries of water from the fire trucks to extinguish the fire. Four fire trucks were engaged — three from Suva Fire Station and one from the Valelevu Fire Station."

And while investigations into the cause of the fire had begun, Mr O'Connor reminded members of the community to adhere to fire safety at all times.

"Fire safety is very important and we are urging members of the community, business owners and homeowners to be mindful of fire safety all times."
