A Kapaa family was left homeless Saturday after a fire destroyed their single-family home in a rural area, but no one was injured.

One man was home at the time, but managed to escape unharmed, said Sarah Blane, Kauai County spokeswoman.

A Kauai County Fire Department helicopter and firefighters from three stations responded to the 11:20 a.m. fire on Waipouli Road. Ground crews were at the scene within 10 minutes, but the home was already fully engulfed in flames, Kauai County said in a news release.

The helicopter made water drops for several hours.

The fire was brought under control shortly after noon, and was extinguished at 3 p.m.

All occupants escaped safely from the three-bedroom, single-story house, the county said.

Relatives assisted the family, Blane said.

A damage estimate has not yet been determined, and fire investigators continued to find the cause of the blaze, the county said this afternoon.
