Rajini Raj, in tears, said his son’s wedding would take place despite a fire that destroyed their home in Nadi on Thursday.
Ms Raj from Malakua, Nadi, said her son arrived at Nadi International Airport yesterday without being aware of the fire.
He discovered it when he arrived at the scene.
Ms Raj, who said it was the first time she had seen a house fire, said her son’s big day would still be.
“We only put the last paint on the house when the fire destroyed it on Thursday,” she added.
Ms. Raj also lamented the loss of their newly purchased furniture and appliances for her son’s wedding.
“We were all very busy preparing for her wedding. It is so unfortunate to have experienced such a tragedy at a time when we were all in an atmosphere of joy and celebration.
She said she could only save her stepdaughter’s wedding sari and jewelry.
“I just knew I had to keep this or we wouldn’t have anything left for the wedding.” We lost our clothes and now our family has decided to help us get through the wedding.
“My husband and I are blessed with their support. “
The fire destroyed their house and two other apartments on Thursday at around 2 a.m.
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro confirmed the incident. She said investigations were continuing.
