Maui fire that destroyed equipment won’t affect youth program



WAILUKU >> Officials with the Boys and Girls Club in Paukukalo say a fire that destroyed equipment in a storage container won’t affect the youth program operated at the Paukukalo Hawaiian Homes Community Center.

Colin Hanlon, chief professional officer of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Maui, estimated the loss of the container and its contents after Monday’s fire would be about $10,000 to $15,000. 

The container was used to store sports supplies, furnishings and art.

Hanlon told The Maui News that athletic gear and other equipment from other Boys and Girls Clubs would be used in the Paukukalo program until the equipment can be replaced.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation, but Maui police say witnesses said two children were playing with fireworks in the area before the fire was reported.
