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.
