A Maui home was gutted by fire this afternoon in an old Wailuku neighborhood.

We received reports of heavy smoke coming from the residential area of Pakahi Street at around 3 p.m.

When our film crew arrived on scene, firefighters were actively fighting the blaze at a two-story residence at 2055 Pakahi Street, between Market and Church Street.

Fire officials received the first alarm at 2:59 p.m. with units responding from Engine 1 in Wailuku; Engine 10, Hazmat 10 and Rescue 10 in Kahului; and Engine 6.
