MAKAHA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu Fire investigators are trying to determine what started a house fire Monday night.

It was reported just before 9:00 PM. on Jade Street in Makaha. Arriving firefighters found a two-story structure fully engulfed in flames. The fire was eventually put out in about an hour, but not before totally destroying the home.

Family members who had just finished fixing up the place say they are in total disbelief.

"We was this close, everything was paint, we was almost done. We was putting the finish back in the house already, and I go to you know, I don't know, I speechless, honestly you know, words cannot even explain how I feel right now", said Mike Coyaso.

Fortunately, no one was home at the time of the fire which caused an estimated $400,000 in damage.

The cause is under investigation.
