Kauai fire officials: Supercuts blaze may have been been set

Kauai County fire officials say a fire that broke out Wednesday morning at Supercuts at the Kauai Shopping Village in Kapaa may have been intentionally set.

Police are investigating the cause of the fire, and fire officials said fire and water damage to the salon and its contents is estimated at about $60,000. Police were notified when firefighters found the salon’s back door ajar, and noticed damage to a safe in the office.

Firefighters responded to a report of a fire about 3:45 a.m., but the building’s sprinkler system had extinguished the blaze by the time firefighters arrived.

The adjoining businesses, GNC and Tropical Dreams Ice Cream, also sustained extensive water damage.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Detective Christian Jenkins at 241-1680 or Police Dispatch, 241-1711. Anonymous tipsters may call CrimeStoppers at 241-1887.
