Fire damages home near Honokaa


A Hawaii island homeowner was able to put out the majority of a blaze that sparked up in their home near Honokaa Friday night before firefighters arrived, county fire officials said.

The fire started in a storage room just after 10 p.m., and the cause is still being investigated.

Officials said fire personnel arrived at 10:29 p.m. to find the fire mostly contained to the storage room though it was starting to flash into the living area of the single-family home. Firefighters had the blaze under control less than 10 minutes later and extinguished roughly an hour later.

Damage to the home is estimated at $30,000. Extensive smoke damage to the entire structure was also reported.
