A fire that broke out Sunday morning in Kilauea, Kauai, destroyed a home and displaced a family of three, according to the Kauai Fire Department.

Shortly before 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Hanalei firefighters responded to a call on Aalona Street in Kilauea, and found a single-story home fully engulfed in flames. They were soon joined by firefighters from the Kaiakea, Kapaa, and Lihue fire stations, as well as the on-duty battalion chief, and the fire was fully extinguished at about 1:30 p.m.

The fire resulted in the total loss of the home, according to the Kauai Fire Department, with damages to the structure and contents estimated at roughly $420,000.

Volunteers with the American Red Cross are assisting the displaced family. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
