HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - HECO says electrical cables that attach the building to a transformer caught on fire late Wednesday night.

Smoke filled some of the rooms.

HECO says the building needs to finish repairing those cables before power can be restored.

That's expected to happen later on Friday.
