House Fire Extinguished in Paradise Park
Hawaii Fire Department personnel responded Sunday afternoon to a fire on Lemiwai Road in Paradise Park subdivision.
Crews arrived just after 2:15 pm to find the three-story, 1,056 square foot structure fully engulfed in flames.
A total of 20 firefighters (including 8 volunteer personnel) worked for over two hours to control the blaze, which was fully extinguished by 5:45 pm.
HFD has not yet released the cause of the fire, or the estimated damages to the five bedroom structure, which county tax records value at approximately $260,000.
This is at least the fourth house fire in East Hawaii this year. In February, an unattended candle destroyed a home in the Black Sands Beach subdivision.
