Large house fire in Sia’atoutai Theological College

Firefighters in Tonga battled a blaze that engulfed a resdential building at the Free Wesleyan Church’s Theological College known as Sia’atoutai in Tongatapu .

Kaniva News understands one of the buildings at the compound known as Si’oto’ofa Atu was badly damaged.

Apparently this was the first house fire to be reported in Tongatapu for 2016.

Authorities could not be reached for comment.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
