The house that was destroyed by fire is located in the town of Paauilo, not Honokaa. Honokaa is aproximately seven miles away from Paauilo. If SA had taken a little time to research this fire they would have known this. It seems the SA always makes a mistake regarding location whenever they write a story about the the Big Island. My condolences to the two people who lost their home.
