Nanakuli fire traced to broken gas pipe

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 09:48 p.m. HST, Jan 07, 2013

Six people were displaced after a fire damaged their two-story Nana­kuli townhouse Sunday night.

Firefighters were called to the Hele­lula Place residence at 10:08 pm. The fire was under control 34 minutes later.

Fire investigators traced the fire to a broken gas pipe outside the residence. A pilot light from a water heater ignited the leaking gas, resulting in a fire that caused an estimated $25,000 in damage to one of the units, according to Hono­lulu Fire Department spokes­man Capt. Terry Seelig.

The fire also resulted in a temporary loss of electricity for two buildings. No injuries were reported.

Are the fire Dept. going to blame fireworks or do fires occur without it? It seems that we have less destructive fires when the whole islands have explosives going on. Seems disingenuous to be complaining of one day of brush fires while the rest of the year have house fires. Pity.
