Fire damages Waikele home

WAIKELE (HawaiiNewsNow) –  Two children and an adult escaped from a burning home on Lelehu Street Monday afternoon. Firefighters responded to the fire just after 5:00 PM.

Everything in the garage was destroyed, but it could have been worse.

A fire department official says a fire-rated door kept the flames from spreading. He also says the explosions that neighbors reported hearing were probably aerosol cans bursting in the fire.

The flames caused about $200,000 in damages. The cause is under investigation.
