Maui fire investigators have classified a shed fire in Lahaina as accidental, resulting in $5,000 in damage.

Maui fire department officials said the fire was reported at 4:43 a.m. Monday morning in the Maui Grown coffee base yard near Keawe Street.

The small wooden shed, about 15 feet by 10 feet, is used as a sleeping area for a property caretaker, the Maui fire department said. The shed and a large pile of wood pallets next to it were engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. It was brought under control at 4:55 a.m.

The shed and a canopy used to store coffee bags were completely destroyed. No injuries were reported.
