Thanks to a smoke detector and a vigilant neighbor, a fire at a Wahiawa home was brought under control by the time firefighters arrived Monday night. The Honolulu Fire Department responded to a fire at 108 Nanea Avenue at 9:08 p.m. Monday, with three fire units and 12 personnel. They arrived at 9:12 p.m. and found light smoke emanating from the left-rear corner of a single-story home. A woman lives at the residence with her four cats, but she was not home at the time of the fire. A male neighbor was alerted to the fire by a working smoke detector and used a fire extinguisher through the kitchen window. The fire was fully extinguished by 9:22 p.m. The cause of the fire is under investigation. No estimated fire damages are available at this time, and no injuries were reported. Two of the four cats remain unaccounted for.
