Sergeant Martin Mehaio and his family lost all property, worth thousands of kina in the blaze, however Sergeant Martin Fari and his family managed to save their belongings.

Speaking to EMTV News he said to date the police department has not come clear on moving them to a temporary shelter.

For health and safety reasons, he is calling on authorities for a quick intervention.
