MILILANI, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) -A dumpster fire at Mililani Uka Elementary School caused minor damage Saturday evening.

The fire, which was caught on camera, happened around 5 p.m. No one was inside.

Firefighters responded to flames shooting out of a dumpster near the school’s cafeteria. HFD said four units staffed with 14 firefighters responded.

The fire was out within minutes, but not before growing large enough to cause some external damage to the wall and roof of the building.
