Fire engines from the Longolongo station rushed to the home, on Salote Rd, in Kolofo’ou shortly after 12am.

“Two people have been located deceased inside the property,” a family member told Kaniva News.

He said three other people including two elderly persons “ongo vaivai” have been taken to hospital after the fire.

The big old white house was known to many as the Percival residence.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.

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.
