Firefighters returned a Kailana Street home in Paukukalo today after receiving reports of flames coming from the two-story structure.
This is the same residence that caught on fire three days earlier on Friday, Jan. 3, displacing six residents from the home.
Today’s fire was reported at 1:44 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 6, 2014, at the home located at 590 Kailana Street.
Upon arrival fire fighters found the structure about 25% involved in fire with the fire located on the second floor at the rear of the residence, said Maui Fire Captain Bram DenHaan.
According to Department reports, crews were able to contain the fire to its origin, and bring the fire under control by 1:58 p.m.
The cause of both fires remained under investigation at last report by police and fire investigators, and estimated damages had not yet been determined.
