Fire destroys vacant, unpermitted HPP house

A structure fire Sunday night destroyed an unpermitted single-family dwelling in Hawaiian Paradise Park.

Nine units responded to the 9:13 p.m. alarm at the vacant 6,000-square-foot post-and-pier structure on 18th Avenue near the dead end off Kaloli Drive, according to a Hawaii Fire Department statement.


The first unit arrived on scene at 9:24 p.m. to find the building “100% involved in fire.”

“Due to structural collapse imminent, defensive strategy was assumed (and) no nearby structures were threatened,” the statement said.

The fire was reported under control at 9:55 p.m. and extinguished at 10:30 p.m.

No estimate of damage was given and the cause of the fire was listed as “undetermined.”
