The Honolulu Fire Department is investigating a string of recent arson cases, but said it’s too early to suggest a pattern. The Honolulu Police Department has reported three fires since Tuesday that may have been intentionally set. On Wednesday around 10:30 p.m., an unoccupied shed in Hawaii sustained minor damages by a fire that “appeared to be intentional.” Earlier that morning, around 2:30 a.m., HFD responded to a fire at a local night club in the Ala Moana area. The interior was almost completely damaged, HPD reported, and surveillance footage shows an unknown suspect arriving on a motorcycle and entering the club. The suspect ran out, and “flames and heavy smoke followed,” HPD reported.
