Honolulu firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire at the Mililani Walmart, the second fire believed to be intentionally set at the store this year.
A small fire occurred in pillow section of the store located at 95-550 Lanikuhana Avenue just after 6:30 a.m. today.
Honolulu Fire Spokesman Capt. David Jenkins said light smoke was observed emerging from the structure. The fire had already been extinguished by an employee who used a fire extinguisher before firefighters arrived.
Dozens of employees and customers evacuated the store at the time of the fire due to smoke. No injuries were reported.
Although Jenkins said they are investigating the cause of the blaze, a manager told employees this morning that someone started a fire in the store again.
On the night of Jan. 22, a small fire occurred in the paper goods section. Firefighters extinguished the blaze by 9:14 p.m. No injuries were reported and damage was estimated at $2,000. The fire department determined the fire was intentionally set.
