Fire investigators believe an early morning fire that destroyed a carport in Waipahu was intentionally set and has turned the case over to police.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to a carport on Pilimai Street after responding to a 1:55 a.m. alarm.

The fire was brought under control within five minutes. No one was living in the house.

Damage, which was mainly to a carport and a moped, was estimated  at $10,000. said Capt. Terry Seelig, Honolulu Fire Department spokesman.

Minor damage to the exterior of the house was reported.
