    Honolulu fire Capt. Terry Seelig surveys the destroyed University of Hawaii building which held key payroll and financial documents for the university system.

University of Hawaii officials say payroll and student loan functions will continue without interruption after a fire destroyed a building that stores records for the entire university system.

Honolulu firefighters continue to investigate the cause of Sunday’s fire in the university’s fiscal building. Firefighters continue putting out hot spots Monday.
UH spokeswoman Lynne Waters says the damage and loss of documentation and information is not as severe as had been reported. She says all payroll information remains on the university’s main frame computer system.
All student loan information is also stored electronically. Original student loan documents such as promissory notes were stored in a fireproof cabinet.
Waters says any damaged documents won’t affect timely payments, collections and other student loan transactions.
There were no injuries.
UH also announced that two athletics events this evening — the UH Baseball Grand Slam Celebration and Rainbow Wahine Softball game – will go on as scheduled.
Motorists are asked to enter via Dole Street or Waialae Avenue entrance gates – the Varsity Circle Gate will be closed to public access. Parts of Lower Campus Road remain closed to enable access for emergency and cleanup vehicles, but the access route to the parking structure is unaffected. 
The Baseball Grand Slam Celebration begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Stan Sheriff Center. The softball game with Missouri-Kansas City begins at 6 p.m.
