Kanaio home fire (3:30 p.m., Oct. 16, 2022) PC: Debra Lordan.

A small home in Kanaio was destroyed by fire on Sunday afternoon, displacing a single resident, fire officials said.

The fire was first reported at around 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 16, at a 20′ x 20′ structure on Upper Kanaio Road.

Fire officials say crews were unable to make access to the fire with response vehicles due to “extremely rough terrain.” The department dispatched Air 1 to make water drops on the fire, and crews brought the fire under control by 5:35 p.m.
