Firefighters are investigating the cause of a two-alarm fire that gutted a garage Tuesday afternoon in Liliha.

Thirty-five Honolulu firefighters responding to the blaze in the 1600 block of Olona Lane about 3:35 p.m. contended with heavy smoke and flames emanating from the two-story home’s garage, said Honolulu fire Capt. David Jenkins.

Five people who had been inside the home when the fire erupted escaped without injury.
