    The Tongan online community was rallying around a family after their home went up in flames over the weekend in Koloua ‘O Kolomotu’a, Tofoa.

    The details of the fire and its cause were still unknown.

    Witnesses said it was just about 9pm on Monday when members of a kava club from across the road noticed the fire erupted in the house.

    No injuries reported in the house fire.

    Fire crews arrived, but couldn’t save the inside of the home and their belongings from destruction.

    However they were able to save part of the property, which were belonged to Hei and Siaosi Hafoka.

    It is understood the family now lived in that part of the building.

    “Wow so sad prayers for the family. Whose property is this?” a commenter said on Facebook.

    “Oh poor family,” another wrote.

    The Fire Service had been contacted for comment.
