NFA Investigates Fatal Fire Incident

The National Fire Authority (NFA) is currently investigating the fire incident which claimed the life of a 70- year old woman in Visama Nausori on Friday 5th November 2021.

The Nausori Fire Station attended the fire incident after they were alerted of the incident at 1.38 am. Upon arrival at the scene, the fire team found the four-bedroom concrete and wooden house fully engulfed in flames. The fire crew managed to extinguish the fire but it was very unfortunate that the body of a woman was found.

NFA CEO Mr. Puamau Sowane says NFA is very saddened by the loss of a life in the fire and greatly sympathizes with the family on their loss.

“It is my plea to the people to take extra precautions to avoid such mishaps. It just heart breaking to see such incidents,” he said.

“I urge all Fijians to adhere to fire safety precautions and take all fire safety precautions seriously. Every life and property matters and everyone has a role to play to ensure that our properties, businesses, homes are fire safe,” he added.

NFA is conducting its investigations to determine the cause of the fire and circumstances surrounding the fire victim.



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.
