The National Fire Authority is raising concerns with the recent increase in the number of fires .
The Four fire incidents was attended to by the NFA this week alone-one in Sigatoka and in Nausori and two in Labasa.
The Sigatoka Fire Station attended to a fire incident that occurred at Friendly Investment Kiosk in Sigatoka on Wednesday night.
The station was alerted through a call about the fire at 10.34 pm and the fire crew responded immediately.
Upon arrival at 10:36pm, the fire crew found the Friendly Investment Kiosk fully engulfed in flames and quickly used one delivery of water from their truck and hydrant to contain the fire to the area of origin and stopping its spread to the adjacent Sigatoka Market.
The quick call to the fire station enabled the firefighters to respond quickly and save the market and the stock inside the market.
Chief Fire Officer-Qionilau Moceitai has reminded the public once again that fire safety is everyone’s responsibility and that simple fire safety precautions should be strictly adhered to at all times to avoid unnecessary fire related damages to your property.
NFA is currently conducting its investigations into all four fire incidents to determine the causes of the fire.
