Kauai firefighters extinguished a fire at a restaurant and bar in Kapaa Tuesday morning.

The Kauai Fire Department said a fire broke out shortly before 6:45 a.m. Tuesday at Sam’s Ocean View Restaurant and Bar.

Police saw smoke and flames coming from the restaurant and immediately evacuated people to a hostel next door.

The fire was contained and fully extinguished shortly after 8 a.m.

The fire department said the fire was contained in the kitchen and attic, and a broken water pipe flooded the kitchen.

The damage is estimated to be about $100,000.
