[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Five residents of a Kaneohe house, alerted by a smoke alarm, managed to escape a house fire Tuesday night.

Firefighters were called to 45-226 William Henry Road at 7:28 p.m.

Two men were evaluated by the Emergency Medical Services personnel for smoke inhalation and refused further treatment.

The first unit arrived at 7:31 p.m. and found the single-story, single-family home with moderate smoke coming from the back of the home.

Fire department personnel used compressed air foam to bring the fire under control at 7:42 p.m., and had the blaze fully extinguished by 8:03 p.m.

One resident returned into the house to use a garden hose to contain the fire to the bedroom before firefighters arrived.

American Red Cross responded to assist the family.

The fire remains under investigation.
