Mahana Estates Fire Burns Garage Under Construction
A fire in Kapalua on Friday morning, July 14, 2017, was confined to a garage that was under construction in the Mahana Estates development.
The incident was reported shortly after 6 a.m. and was contained within about 15 minutes.
Fire investigators say the cause was believed to have been the self-ignition of rags containing wood finishing products.
The fire spread from those rags to other contents of the garage, causing an estimated $30,000 in damage to the structure, and $20,000 in damage to its contents.
Three companies of firefighters from Nāpili and Lahaina and a battalion chief responded to this fire.
