5-4 LEAHI HOSPITAL FIRE_92914

A scary day at Leahi Hospital on Monday afternoon after a small fire prompted an evacuation.

It happened around 5:30 p.m.

Honolulu fire officials tell us some welding being done on the roof of the Young Building sparked the fire which in turn caused a smoke alarm to go off.

The roofers were able to extinguish the fire themselves.

No one was injured.
