HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu firefighters are investigating the cause of a building fire that burned the second floor of the McLean Building in Chinatown late Tuesday night.

Crews from the Honolulu Fire Department first responded to emergency calls at around 11:30 p.m. and immediately dispatched a rare third alarm to the building to help battle the flames.

"First company saw heavy smoke and flames showing from two sides, the Nu'uanu side and the Bethel side," said Capt. Terry Seelig. "So, we called the third alarm."

Fire investigators say the fire is believed to have started in a second floor office space on the mauka end of the building, about the Indigo Restaurant and Bar. Firefighters were able confine the flames to the second floor.

The main parts of Indigo were not damaged, and the restaurant's owner says he will likely be back open for business today.

No one was injured during the fire, firefighters say.
