Fire destroyed a single-family home in Maili on Friday morning.

Honolulu firefighters responding to the 8:19 a.m. call found the home, a Quonset hut unit, on Maipela Street fully engulfed in fire.

The blaze was brought under control at 8:38 a.m. and fully extinguished by 9:16 a.m.

Twenty-four personnel from 12 fire companies were dispatched to the fire.

A 45-year-old woman who was in the home was able to escape without injury. The American Red Cross of Hawaii is assisting her.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Damage was estimated at $75,000 to the metal structure and $5,000 to its contents.

HPD seeks information on mystery shooting

Police are seeking help in an attempted-murder investigation involving the shooting of a man Wednesday night somewhere on Oahu.

Police said Kele Stout drove himself to the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center at about 7:20 p.m. Wednesday with numerous gunshot wounds. He became unconscious after arriving and has been unable to provide any information about his injuries.

Honolulu CrimeStoppers Coordinator Sgt. Kim Buffet said Stout had more than five gunshot wounds in an area that could not have been self-inflicted.

She withheld further details about the injuries because police hope witnesses can provide those details. She said Stout is a Hawaii resident, and his family does not know how he was injured.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME from a cellphone.
