HOUSE FIRE CLAIMS LIFE OF ELDERLY COUPLE

National Fire Authority (NFA) attended to a fire emergency call at Tamasua Street, Nailuva last night that claimed the life of an elderly couple.

At 10.33 pm, the Suva Fire Station was alerted of the house fire and responded immediately. Upon arrival at the scene at 10.40 pm, the fire team found the top flat of a double-storey concrete house fully engulfed in flames. The fire crew used two deliveries of water from the fire trucks to quickly extinguish the fire and stopped its spread to the bottom flat of the house and nearby double storey -house which was only a few meters apart.

The fire crew managed to extinguish and control the fire but it was very unfortunate that the bodies of an elderly couple were found at the scene, believed to be the occupants of the house.  The top floor of the house was occupied by the couple while the bottom flat had tenants. 

 NFA is very saddened by the loss of two lives in the fire and greatly sympathizes with the family on their loss.

 NFA will work with the Police and conduct its investigations to determine the cause of the fire and circumstances surrounding the fire victims.

Established by virtue of the National Fire Service Act, 1994 the National Fire Authority assumed responsibilities to provide fire services for the entire nation of Fiji in February 1995.
