An investigation is underway to determine the cause of four deaths in a house fire in River Road, Nasinu yesterday.
Thirty-one year old Ranjana Wati is alleged to have set the house on fire with her three children aged four, three and the youngest – an eighteen month old baby – locked inside.
Neighbours claim the deceased woman had returned from CWM hospital around mid-day after visiting her husband- a bus driver who attempted to commit suicide earlier this week.
Police Spokesperson Ana Naisoro says it’s very early stages into the investigations to reveal the cause of the fire and the circumstances surrounding the incident.
She adds they’re working closely with the National Fire Authority to determine the cause of the fire.
