FLAMES LIGHT UP SKY IN KAPALAMA
Police swarmed Kapalama this morning after spotting flames and smoke shooting into the sky. It's the same sight that I saw on my drive into work. I started shooting the scene while getting gas across the street on Dillingham Boulevard. Ramsay is gathering details about what happened. So far, we've learned it was a pallet fire behind the Kapalama Shopping Center. More details ahead on Sunrise.
SALT LAKE BOMB SCARE
Another overnight story involves a "suspicious package" found hanging on the fence by the HECO substation. Police shut down Salt Lake Boulevard near Radford High School from 1 until 3:20 this morning to investigate the bomb scare. Turns out it was a teacher's bag.
