Traffic flow this afternoon is expected to be a bit slower than normal on and near Beretania and Alapai streets near the Honolulu Police main station and city bus terminal to accommodate the production of the TV series “Hawaii Five-0.”
The shooting of a drive sequence is scheduled to take place between 1:30 and 3 p.m.
City officials said traffic will be held up for short periods on Alapai and Beretania streets and streets that “T” into Beretania, including Lisbon, Lauhala and Punchbowl streets.
An official said the maximum hold time will be three minutes and that traffic will be allowed to return to normal before the scene is attempted again.
Police officers on special duty will be on-site to ensure safety.
Hawaii’s film industry generates an estimated $438 million in economic activity and 2,600 full-time equivalent jobs annually, city officials said, citing state figures.
Officials can’t find cause of Nanakuli fire
Honolulu fire investigators have classified the cause of a two-alarm fire that ravaged a Nanakuli home as undetermined.
At 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, 11 companies staffed with over 30 firefighters responded to the fire at a single-story duplex, 87-1740 Farrington Highway. When they arrived, smoke and flames were emerging from one of two separate units.
Honolulu Fire spokesman Capt. David Jenkins said two occupants, a man and a baby, were home at the time and managed to escape without any injuries.
Firefighters brought the fire under control and extinguished it shortly after 12:20 p.m.
Though investigators determined the fire had started in a kitchen in one of the units, they couldn’t pinpoint the cause because of the extensive damage in the area.
Damage to the structure and its contents was estimated at $230,000.
The American Red Cross is assisting two families who were displaced by the fire.
