Palolo home damaged in fire
Fire investigators were searching this morning for the cause of a blaze that last night caused $130,000 in damage to a Palolo home.
Firefighters responded to an 8:52 p.m. alarm, dispatching a ladder and three engine companies to the two-story home at 1430 Pukele Ave.
The fire was under control at 9:03 p.m., but firefighters didn't leave the scene until about 11 p.m., said fire department spokesman Capt. Richard Soo. Damages were most severe to the lower floor, Soo said, and were estimated at $100,000 to the building and $30,000 to the contents.
The American Red Cross last night provided temporary housing to the family of three and is collecting donations. Information: 734-2101.
