HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The first two floors of the Hawaii Government Employees Association headquarters on Mililani Street were flooded early Tuesday.

According to the Honolulu Fire Department, a security guard making his rounds noticed the water in the building at around 2 a.m. Fire officials said a cap bursted off a pipe in a newly remodeled bathroom on the second floor, sending water streaming down stairwells, the elevator shaft and light fixtures.

The building was closed at the time and fire officials said there's no damage estimate at this time.

HGEA is Hawaii's largest union, representing nearly 43,000 state workers.
