    Firefighters responded Friday night to reports of smoke at the Appetito Craft Pizza & Wine Bar.

Honolulu firefighters responded Friday evening to reports of smoke at a pizza and wine bar located on the ground floor of the Ohana Waikiki East by Outrigger, but there was no fire.

Firefighters discovered the smoke was coming from the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system (HVAC) on the second floor, Honolulu Fire Department said this morning.

Ventilation techniques were used to clear the smoke inside the building.

HFD responded with 10 units staffed with 39 personnel to the restaurant located at the corner of Kuhio Avenue and Walina Street.

Firefighters first arrived at 7:01 p.m. after receiving the 6:54 p.m. call. They saw smoke coming from an exterior vent near the second floor, but did not see any flames.

They checked if any occupants needed medical attention at Appetito Craft Pizza & Wine Bar, which has a wood-fired oven, as they evacuated the building.

No occupants were injured or needed medical assistance.

The hotel was closed and scheduled to reopen Aug. 1, so no guests were occupants in the hotel.
