Flames engulf home in Lahaina


A Maui fire did an estimated $375,000 in damages at a residence in Lahaina.

Fire spokesman Ryan Piros said the cause of the fire at 852 Kelawea Street was under investigation.

Piros said the homeowner reported the fire at 6:20 p.m. Monday and the house was fully engulfed in flames by the time firefighers arrived.

A firefighter suffered heat exhaustion and residents at eight nearby homes were evacuated after officials noticed that a 124-gallon propane tank on the property was venting.

But otherwise, no one was injured, Piros said.
