A home on Royal Poinciana Drive in Kailua-Kona caught fire Friday afternoon, Jan. 21, suffering $400,000 in damage, the Hawai‘i Fire Department reported. All residents evacuated the home in the 76-000 block and were uninjured before the fire was extinguished by 4 p.m.

The cause of the fire that took the single-family, five-unit home is under investigation, the department stated.

Red Cross disaster volunteers are meeting with affected residents to ensure their immediate emergency needs for food, shelter and clothing are met, the organization stated in a press release Friday evening. Caseworkers will continue to follow up with anyone affected in the coming weeks to provide referrals, guidance or additional assistance as needed to help with the recovery process.
