Three people are homeless following a fire this morning in Lahaina.
The fire was reported at 6:21 a.m. at a home at 1342-B Kahoma St. In Lahaina. No one was injured, a Maui fire department official said. The fire was under control by 6:48 a.m. and extinguished three hours later.
The cottage was a total loss with damage estimated at $100,000 to the building and $24,000 to its contents. Maui fire officials said a neighboring house suffered damage estimated at $10,000 to the structure and $1,000 to its contents. However, no one was displaced by that fire.
The Red Cross was at the scene to help the three people who lived at the home.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
