A vehicle fire in Pauoa determined to be intentionally set caused $47,000 in damage, according to the Honolulu Fire Department.

Eleven units with more than 45 firefighters responded to the blaze at 1995 Pauoa Road at approximately 3:30 a.m. Sunday. When they arrived, they observed a vehicle fully engulfed in flames in the garage of a three-story apartment building, said HFD spokesman Capt. Scot Seguirant.

No injuries were reported.

Two vehicles and the building sustained damage from the blaze.
