HAUULA (KHNL) A family in Hauula spent their Easter cleaning up after a fire destroyed part o their home. Fire investigators say it was probably started by a candle.
A day later you can still smell the smoke and see the damage. Neighbors say the quick work by firefighters prevented the worst from happening.
Firefighters scrambled to control the fire at the home on Honomu street.. They were called just after 10:30 PM Saturday night. They had the fire out in less than a half hour.
"There was kind of an explosion and then we came out and saw the flames and everything. The fire department got here really really fast, did a great job" said neighbor Jim Cook.
The fire melted some of the siding and the smoke left it's mark around the windows.
"All in all, it was really a pretty quick response and they contained it to just one room. And I'm glad it didn t go all the way up, because I didn't want it to get my house"
