Home up in flames

POLICE in the Northern Division are investigating a fire that destroyed a four-bedroom house in Bua on Wednesday.

Spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri yesterday said the house was completely razed along with all its contents.

"The house was made of corrugated iron and timber and the fire completely destroyed everything inside," he said.

"The house was vacant at the time of the fire and the estimated cost of damage stands at $180,000.

"The burnt house was not insured and police are still investigating the matter."

The incident prompted police to issue a fresh advice for people to be extra careful and cautious about their properties.

"We are appealing to all the members of the community to take extra care and ensure their properties are safe from fires," Insp Sokomuri added.

"It's always important to check and recheck your houses before going out to avoid fire incidents."
