A 48 year old farmer of Naqere in Savusavu lost his home in a fire which is believed to have started by a child playing with matches.
The incident occurred last night after 8pm.
All occupants of the house were rescued safely however two children aged 14 and 6 years of age sustained burns and are now admitted at the Labasa Hospital.
Initial findings indicate the fire could have started from one of the bedrooms where a 3 year old child was allegedly playing with matches.
This is however subject to investigations and findings of the National Fire Authority investigations.
