Residents in a Hawaii Kai neighborhood raise concerns after three fires happened at the same Pepe'ekeo Street property this year. The most recent fire, this past Thursday. Councilman Tommy Waters has even gotten involved. "I'm absolutely concerned about the safety of the neighbors in the community," he says. Owner Chris Loo, who lives in Pearl City, confirms an arson investigation is underway. He says it was his parents' home, but his father died and his mother now lives with one of his siblings for caregiving. Loo had been working on renovating the home, but had to stop in 2016 when he had a stroke that left him partially paralyzed. A letter from Waters addressed to the owners states residents in the area have reported seeing squatters along with illegal drug use and a lack of a maintenance of the property. But Loo tells KITV4, that letter was never sent to him directly.
