A massive blaze destroyed a Big Island home on Saturday afternoon.

The fire started at about noon and ripped through the Kailua-Kona home on Kealapua Street.

Witnesses say two adults and three children escaped the burning home but have lost everything in the house fire.

Hawaii county firefighters arrived just in time to keep the flames from jumping to nearby homes.

Red Cross disaster volunteers will meet with affected residents to assist with their recovery process.
