Federal firefighters investigate cause of townhouse fire in Aliamanu

Federal firefighters today were still investigating the cause of a fire that displaced a family Sunday morning in Aliamanu Military Reservation.

About 4:20 a.m. Sunday, the Federal Fire Department and the Honolulu Fire Department responded to a two-story townhouse fire on Croton Street in Aliamanu Military Reservation and found flames coming out of a garage, where a car was parked, and reaching the eaves of the second floor, firefighters said.

Firefighters protected the adjoining unit from damage, but the unit where the fire started sustained significant damage and was uninhabitable, firefighters said.

Angela Sanders, Federal Fire Department spokeswoman, said all the occupants and a family dog escaped without injury and were relocated to temporary housing by a military housing contractor.

Sanders said today that the cause was still under investigation and a damage estimate was unavailable.
