Nobody was hurt – but a bedroom was destroyed by fire earlier today in Nahiku.
Maui Fire Department crews in Hana received an alarm for smoke visible at 7:57 a.m. near a residence between mile marker 28 and 29 in upper Nahiku. MFD Engine-7, M-7 and T-7 responded to the alarm. Upon arrival fire fighters found a one story, two-bedroom, approximately 500 square foot cottage, with heavy smoke showing from the eaves and some flames near the front door.
The fire was contained to one of the bedrooms. About a third of the cottage was destroyed. No one was home at the time of the incident. Monetary damages to the structure and contents and cause of the fire are under investigations.
