A Memorial Day structure fire at the Maui Grown Coffee base yard caused $5,000 in damage to a wooden shed, fire officials said.

The fire was reported at 4:33 a.m. on Monday, May 27, 2013 at the base yard located off of Keawe Street in Lahaina.

The 15- by 10-foot structure was used as a sleeping area for a property caretaker, who was not at the location when the fire occurred, said Maui Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga.

According to FS Chief Mainaga, the structure and a large pile of wood pallets next to it was fully involved upon arrival by firefighters form the Lahaina and Nāpili stations.
