KAPAA, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

 

Firefighters extinguished a structure fire that broke out overnight at the Chicken in a Barrel restaurant in Kapaa.

Crews from the Kapaa and Kaiakea fire stations were dispatched to 4-1586 Kuhio Hwy. shortly before 1 a.m. Once on scene, firefighters located a storage shed behind the restaurant that was involved in flames.
