Police briefly closed the eastbound lanes of Kapiolani Boulevard this morning between South and Cooke streets due to a structure fire in Kakaako.

The fire, at the Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company building on the corner of Kapiolani Blvd. and South Street, was called in at 6:57 a.m. and was brought under control by firefighters at 7:14 a.m. and extinguished eight minutes later, according to Fire Captain Kevin Mokulehua.

Firefighters found the smoldering fire in a utility room on the second floor of the three-story building, Mokulehua said.

The affected eastbound lanes of Kapiolani Blvd. were reopened at 8:28 a.m.

A damage estimate is pending and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
