Honolulu firefighters extinguished a second-alarm fire at a strip mall on Kapiolani Boulevard on Saturday morning. Officials said the fire started at around 9 a.m. Firefighters responding to the scene said smoke was emanating near the roof on the back side of the single-story building. HFD used aerial and ground ladders to access the roof and also used thermal imaging cameras.
