Emergency crews rushed to a two-alarm building fire in Waikiki Saturday.
The call came in just after 2 p.m. from the Laniakea apartment building on Hobron Lane.
Residents noticed smoke coming from a first floor unit and called 911.
Bystanders broke the windows and a man used the building's fire hose to keep the flames from spreading.
"I was just more concerned about getting the fire contained until the real guys -- the heroes -- can get here and put it out. I was just trying to help out in any way I could. And I was concerned because my aunt lives next door so I didn't want the fire to go anywhere else," Good Samaritan George Killion said.
Once crews arrived, part of Hobron Lane was blocked off, and HFD began extinguishing the fire.
