HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Honolulu Fire Department responded to a call about a house fire on Hele Street in Kailua. Firefighters arrived at the scene on Thursday, June 9, at around 5:42 a.m.

“I hope everyone is safe and no one was harmed. It was frightening to witness the visible flames above the tree line knowing that at 5:50 a.m. most people were still asleep.  My heart goes out to family or families affected by the fire,” said Kailua resident Lyssa Trujillo.
