About ten people are homeless after a fire destroyed two houses at Kavika Place in Nakasi yesterday afternoon.

According eyewitnesses, the fire started from the single storey house and spread to the double-storey house.

Five people were in the single-storey house when the fire started but there are no reports of injuries or casualties.

The owner of the single storey house, Edwin Sen says the fire may have started from a technical fault.

He says he was in the shower when the fire started and contacted the NFA at around 2.45pm.

Three fire trucks responded to the call.
