KAPAA, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Kapa'a family has been displaced Saturday after their home on Waipouli Road was fully destroyed by a fire that broke out at around 11:20 a.m.

All occupants were able to safely exit the three-bedroom home before responders arrived.

Firefighters from the Kaikea, Kapa'a, and Lhu'e stations were on scene within 10 minutes to find the home fully engulfed in flames. They were assisted by Air 1, which continued to provide water drops for several hours.

The fire was deemed under control shortly after noon, but was not considered fully extinguished until 3 p.m.

An estimate of damages to the structure and contents has not yet been determined and fire inspectors continue to investigate the cause of the blaze.
