HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 75-year-old woman who was critically injured in a large fire last week in Kalihi has died, Hawaii News Now has learned.

Authorities have not yet released the identity of the woman. She initially sustained second-degree burns in the blaze.

The fire ― which started around 9 a.m. last Friday at a condominium complex on Haumana Place ― destroyed the structure and displaced nearly 20 people.

Fire investigators ultimately were not able to determine a cause for the fire, but say there were working smoke detectors in the building.
