Kaneohe Building Fire, al-Qaida Leader Killed, & Rail Layoffs

We're following some breaking news on this Monday morning.

KANEOHE BUILDING FIRE

Crews are on scene of a building fire in Kaneohe. Flames were spotted shooting out of the structure on Peninsula Place around 4 a.m. Ramsay Wharton will have the latest live on Sunrise.

THIS JUST IN: AL-QAIDA LEADER KILLED

The Associated Press is reporting that Security forces in Yemen have killed al-Qaida's second in command in Yemen. Said al-Shihri was reported killed in an air strike. He's described as a Saudi national who was released by the US from detention in Guantanamo Bay in 2007.

RAIL LAYOFFS

While the legal battle continues over Honolulu's rail project, we know it's starting to affect employment. Kiewit Construction has cut 30 jobs. Howard Dicus says it's hard to gauge the full impact though since it's still in court under appeal.

PRESIDENTIAL POLLS & CONGRESS BACK TO WORK

The political conventions are history. Traditionally, candidates get a big bounce from what are essentially pep rallies for the party's candidate. Sunrise National Correspondent Tracie Potts will tell us what new post-Convention polls say. Plus, what's tops on the long to do list for Congress now that they get back to work on Capitol Hill.

Hope you can join us for Sunrise!

Aloha,
