Honolulu firefighters responded to a garage fire that broke out in Ewa Beach today.
More than 35 firefighters responded to the blaze in the garage of a two-story residence at 91-1027 Kaunoa St. at about 9 a.m. today.
Resident Edgardo De Jesus said he was watching television in his living room when he smelled smoke. He then heard his neighbor yell “your house is on fire!”
De Jesus opened the door on the side of the garage when he saw large flames and smoke.
His two sons and wife safely escaped the house as De Jesus grabbed a garden hose and sprayed water on the flames until firefighters arrived.
Firefighters contained the blaze to the garage and brought the fire under control just after 9:10 a.m., according to Honolulu Fire spokesman Capt. Jeffrey Roache.
The rest of the home remains intact. No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire is under investigation and a damage estimate has yet to be determined.
