Dumpster Fire Forces Evacuation at Aiea Store

By Minna Sugimoto

AIEA (KHNL) -- Shoppers got more than they bargained for at the Best Buy in Aiea Friday afternoon.

A dumpster fire just outside the store sent smoke into the building. About 30 employees and 20 customers were evacuated. No one was hurt.

Fire officials say the dumpster contained construction materials from a renovation project at the store.

The building's sprinkler system kept the fire under control.
