A newly-renovated house on Hibiscus Lane, in Bryce Street, Raiwaqa, was completely destroyed by a fire yesterday.

Asenaca Atama, a resident of Milverton Road, who witnessed the fire said she ran across from her home when she saw black smoke coming out from one of the houses on Hibiscus Lane.

“At around 1:30pm, I was standing outside my house and saw black clouds of smoke come out of one of the houses and my first thought was someone’s house is on fire,” she said.

“I thought it was our church member’s house that caught fire, but it was the house next to it.”
