FIRE fighters rushed to the Suva Port this morning when a fire broke out at the restaurant located in the port premises.

A fire truck and 10 firefighters fought to prevent the fire from completely engulfing the Korchi Restaurant.

Security officer Semisi Matakibau said the fire started at 10am today.

He said they never knew that the restaurant was on fire until they heard the alarm went off.

“Luckily, the National Fire Authority arrived on time. Had they not, the whole building would have burnt down and people would have lost their jobs,” Mr Matakibau said.

Preliminary investigations have now begun.
