PORTLOCK (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu firefighters responded to home fire on Kokee Street Tuesday morning.

The fire broke just before 9 a.m. in a structure separate from the main house.

According to officials, the property is valued between $7.5 million and $9 million.

No one was hurt in the fire, but a priceless Terra Cotta Warrior statue was damaged.

"Our firefighters did a rapid knock down and were able to keep the fire confined," HFD Capt. Terry Seelig said. "The owners did a really good job of getting themselves out of harm's way and calling for help."

Fire crews managed to put out the flames within 15 minutes of receiving the call using a specialized foam.

No injuries were reported.

Total structure and content damages are estimated at $600,000.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
