Maui firefighters responded to a 12:08 p.m. alarm for a structure fire at Dragon Dragon Restaurant, 70 E. Kaahumanu Ave., located in the Maui Mall.

Crews arrived to find the fire out and the restaurant patrons had evacuated.

Damage was estimated at $500. There was minor water damage to the ceiling tiles. No food was lost.
