KAHUKU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu firefighters extinguished a second fire in three days at Kahuku High School.

HFD officials say the flames broke out in a classroom just after 9:30 p.m. Friday. 

Some 19 personnel responded and had the flames fully extinguished by 10:14 p.m.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. 

Earlier in the week, on May 9, a fire broke out at the school's administration building. 

Nearly 20 firefighters responded around 2:50 a.m. Tuesday morning, and found smoke and flames coming from the rooftop. 

The fire was under control by 3 a.m. and fully extinguished by 3:35 a.m.

No one was inside at the time.

HFD says they were unable to determine a cause, but say the fire originated from the vent of a bathroom inside the building.

Damage is estimated at $2,000.
