Sugar shipment ready amid fire warning

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, August 19, 2014

THE FSC has called on members of the public to exercise caution when burning cane given the windy and dry spell in the North.

Company executive chairman Abdul Khan yesterday said the dry spell could possibly trigger uncontrollable fire.

"We are urging people to be cautious when they are lighting fire. We know that certain places are very dry and any uncontrolled fire has the potential to destroy cane crops," Mr Khan said.

"It's only important that we take caution and supervise fire."

Mr Khan said the first sugar ship had arrived into the Malau Wharf.

"The ship arrived on Sunday and it will first load the sugar in Malau and will then travel to Lautoka.

"We are expecting to load 18,000 tonnes of sugar from Labasa in this first shipment. The next ship into Malau will be expected on August 24.

"As for the mill, we had a slight mishap with an electrical fire at one of our switchboards but it was attended to within 24 hours.

"The mill is back to its normal operations and so far, it's doing very well."
