The National Fire Authority attended to a fire incident that occurred at the Pacific Batteries PTE Ltd in Wailada Lami on Friday Night.
NFA Chief Fire Officer-Qionilau Moceitai says investigation is underway to ascertain the cause of the Fire.
Acting CEO-Mileta Seniroqa says at 10.44pm, the Suva Fire Station was alerted through a call of a fire emergency and immediately responded.
Upon arrival at 10.51pm, the fire team saw Pacific Batteries PTE Ltd’s warehouse well involved in flames.
Seniroqa says their Team quickly used multiple deliveries of water from their fire trucks and fire hydrant supply to extinguish the fire and stop it from spreading to other parts of the building and two adjacent buildings to the warehouse.
It is understood the fire started from the middle of the warehouse where car batteries and other stock to manufacture the batteries was stored.
The warehouse contained a lot of flammable materials such as gas and would have contributed to a massive fire if it was not controlled from spreading to other parts of the warehouse.
