Fire inspectors are investigating the cause of an early morning fire that destroyed a van parked in a carport in Palolo and may have been deliberately set.
Fire crews responded to the fire at 1 a.m. on Waiomao Road and extinguished it 15 minutes later.
The fire damaged a white Chevrolet van and a carport. There also was limited smoke damage to the home.
The fire is suspicious because it appeared to have started in two different locations, said Capt. Carlton Yamada, the Honolulu Fire Department spokesman.
