North Kohala firefighters on Sunday doused a blaze in what a Hawai‘i Fire Department report said was single-story family dwelling — likely vacant.
HFD Company 15 responded to 55-3576 Soares Road/Akoni Pule Highway at 3:57 p.m. Sunday. The department was able to contain the fire at roughly 60% spread, the report indicated. The last flames went out at 5 p.m. The department estimated property losses at $250,000. The source of the fire remains under investigation.
