Firefighters quickly extinguish Ewa Beach structure fire

Fireworks may be to blame for an Ewa Beach structure fire tonight that was quickly brought under control.

The fire was the first possible fireworks-related fire on Oahu since firefighters initiated the classification on Wednesday, said Honolulu Fire Department spokesman Kendall Ching.

Ching said firefighters are tracking fires may be fireworks-related over a three-day period that ends Friday. The cause of the Ewa Beach fire has yet to be determined.

Firefighters responded to a report of a structure fire at 91-1680 block of Orrick St. about 7:30 p.m., Ching said. The fire was brought under control at 7:42 p.m. Details on the fire and its damage were not immediately available.
