Condo fire causes $20,000 damage

A fire on the fifth floor of a condominium in Salt Lake caused an estimated $20,000 in damage.

The fire at the Kahana Kai condominium at 3020 Ala Napuaa St. took firefighters 10 minutes to control after receiving the dispatch at 12:20 p.m. today, said Honolulu fire Capt. Terry Seelig.

Seelig said the fire occurred in the kitchen shortly after workers doing some finishing work left the condominium unit. He said the cause of the fire was under investigation.

Kanye West’s Porsche stolen, crashed

Police are still searching for suspects who allegedly stole and crashed music producer and rapper Kanye West’s Porsche Panamera over the weekend.

At about 4 a.m. Saturday, the car crashed into an unoccupied home on Hibiscus Drive after appearing to have missed a right turn on the road, police said.

A source said the car belongs to West, a part-time Honolulu resident who was not on island at the time of the crash. Police said two male suspects were seen running from the scene toward Kapiolani Park.

West’s vehicle was reported stolen after the accident. Police could not provide a description of the two suspects, who are wanted on suspicion of auto theft and leaving the scene of an accident.

Pat Cooper, who lives across from where the car crashed on Hibiscus Drive, said the car went through the garage door, stopping in a concrete block wall.

The crash woke her up, and she went to check what happened.

"That was surprising," she said. "And no one in the car."

Just before the crash, a car racing down the street woke up resident Paul Holthus. He looked out and phoned police. He asked men walking away if they were leaving the scene. They kept walking, he said.

When he walked to the car, he saw its doors open and its airbags deployed.

Realtor Stephen Cipres, who represents the damaged, $3.9 million home, said it had just been renovated and had been scheduled for an open house. He said the damage was limited to the garage and he planned to show the home anyway.
