Hawaii County firefighters responded to two separate fires this weekend — one in Pepe'ekeo and the other in the volcano district.
The first fire broke out at a home on Nahelenani Street in Volcano around 6:15 p.m. Saturday evening.
When fire crews arrived, they said the single-story home was fully engulfed in flames. Three people were home at the time the fire started. One adult male sustained burns while trying to put out the flames.
He was taken in serious condition to Hilo Medical Center. The other two residents, both children, were taken to the hospital for precautionary measures.
