Eight people were displaced by a structure fire reported shortly after 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 29, 2014, at 2164 West Vineyard Street in Wailuku, fire officials said.

Fire inspectors on scene have since determined that the cause of the incident was an accidental cooking fire, said Maui Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga.

Fire crews from Wailuku arrived on scene to find that the fire had already been extinguished by a resident, said Mainaga.
