HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu firefighters rushed to a Kinau Street apartment early Thursday following reports of an odor of smoke, but instead ended up cleaning water from fire sprinklers that flooded the building.

According to the Honolulu Fire Department, more than 10 firefighters were dispatched around 1:30 a.m. to Kinau Vista located at 1150 Kinau Street. Upon arrival at 1:35 a.m., they discovered that an activated sprinkler head extinguished a fire that broke out earlier.

HFD did not have further details regarding the fire, but there were no injuries reported.

The cause of the fire and damage estimates are under investigation.
