Fire Damages Kitchen at Waikoloa Village Golf ClubFebruary 18, 2013, 12:27 PM HST (Updated February 19, 2013, 7:47 PM)
A kitchen fire caused about $150,000 in damage at the Waikoloa Village Golf Club early this morning.
Hawaii Fire Department personnel responding to a 6:16 a.m. call found heavy smoke coming from the building.
Because the building was locked, firefighters forced their way through the font door and found a small fire had spread to kitchen’s walls and ceiling.
It took firefighters about a half-hour to extinguish the blaze, after which the building was ventilated.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
