Big Island firefighters douse Hilo house fire

Hawaii County firefighters doused a Hilo house fire early this morning that caused an estimated $100,000 damage.

A neighbor taking a morning walk saw smoke coming from the Kaulana Street house and called 911.

The first alarm was at 5:57 a.m. When firefighters arrived at 6:02 a.m., they found flames and smoke coming from the window of a home office in the three-bedroom, 2,000-square-foot house.

No one was at home at the time of the fire.

Seventeen firefighters responded to the fire.

Fire officials said the wood-framed house, valued at $350,000, received an estimated $100,000 in damage. The cause remains under investigation.
