Honolulu firefighters battled a fire that broke out at a residence in Kapahulu early today.
Twelve units with about 40 firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire at the 3100 block of Hinano Street shortly after 12:45 a.m. Upon arrival, they found smoke and flames emanating from the middle of the single-story home, the fire department said.
Honolulu police and fire crews also detained a 30-year-old male occupant who was uncooperative. The fire department later found out the occupant tested had positive for COVID-19.
Fire crews brought the fire under control at about 1:30 a.m. and extinguished it within 45 minutes.
There were no injuries reported.
The cause of the fire is under investigation and a damage estimate has yet to be determined.
