Neighbors help 90-year-old woman escape fire

By Star-Advertiser staff


An early morning fire at a Wailuku apartment caused $2,000 worth of damage and left a senior citizen and her dog without a home.

Neighbors woke up a 90-year-old woman who was sleeping in her apartment and helped her and dog to safety, a Fire Department spokesman said.

Maui firefighters responded to the 3:41 a.m at 1090 Eha St. and found the entrance to one of the units on fire. The fire was brought under control at 3:55 a.m.  and extinguished at 4:43 a.m.

Seven other people in the apartment complex also escaped without injury.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
