Arson suspect released pending investigation

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A resident of an apartment complex where a fire broke out late Wednesday night in the Punahou area, was arrested Friday afternoon for first-degree arson.

She was later released pending further investigation.

Authorities say 49-year old Celestine Myles lived in the bottom floor unit where the fire started. 

Witnesses told investigators they saw her leave the apartment after it caught fire, without warning her neighbors.

Fire officials say the flames spread into an upstairs unit.  Fortunately, no one was hurt.
