The Honolulu Fire Department determined that a Salt Lake high-rise fire this afternoon was caused by someone doing plumbing work.
Firefighters from five units responded to a 1:16 p.m. call at 5080 Likini St., a 14-story apartment building, where they found a smoldering fire inside a common wall between two penthouse units.
Firefighters brought the fire under control by 1:30 p.m. and had it fully extinguished by 1:51 p.m.
HFD investigators determined that the fire was accidentally caused by a torch used for plumbing work.
The fire caused an estimated $3,000 in damage. No one was injured.
