A female within the unit was aroused from a nap by neighbors pounding on her door, said Chief Mainaga.  No injuries were reported, but the fire resulted in total losses of $1,000.

Before firefighters arrived, a resident manager and Maui Police personnel had attempted to put out the blaze with fire extinguishers.

The fire was under control by 2:09 p.m., and extinguished at round 3 p.m.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
