Five separate fires have left twenty-seven people homeless in just 36-hours.

The National Fire Authority is concerned that in two incidents the houses were allegedly set on fire by the property owners or occupants.

A two-flat house consisting of five bedrooms was destroyed in Tomanu Road, Nasinu this morning and it’s believed the homeowner’s son set fire to the property in a state of drunkenness.

The NFA says the owner of the house had turned off the main switch in the Energy Fiji Limited meter box a week earlier when he visited the property.

In the third incident, a lean-to corrugated iron and timber house was destroyed at Edinburgh Drive in Suva yesterday.

It is alleged the owner of the house started the fire and fled the scene.
