Honolulu firefighters responded to a 2-alarm blaze at Ala Moana Center Tuesday morning.
The fire was reported at 1:49 a.m. with thick black smoke emanating from the the coral level basement parking area.
This blaze was difficult for firefighters to battle with zero visibility due to the thick black smoke and radio communications impacted by operating in the lowest level of the shopping center.
The fire was brought under control at 2:56 a.m. and extinguished at 3:52 a.m.
Officials determined that the source of the smoke was from a maintenance and operations storage area.
A third-alarm was called but personnel returned because the fire was then under control.
The fire remains under investigation and damage estimates are not available at this time.
No injuries were reported.
