Fire Destroys Home on Government Beach Road
A fire of unknown origin destroyed a home on a coastal road between Hawaiian Paradise Park and Hawaiian Beaches early this morning.
Firefighters from the HPP fire station responding to a 4:54 a.m. alarm arrived at the house at 15-2169 Government Beach Rd. at 5:15 p.m.
They found the 2,100-square-foot, three-story structure had collapsed in flames.
Firefighters found their access to the home hampered by a rock wall at the perimeter with a narrow, locked gate. Firefighters had to cut the lock to gain entry to the property.
No one was home at the time at the time of the fire.
A fire department inspector was investigating the cause of the fire.
An estimate of the damage was not immediately available.
