Published by: HIRSC - Hawaii Island (Hōlualoa) Team

The Hawaii Fire Department (HFD) along with the Hawaii Police Department (HPD) responded to a structure fire at a residence in the Eden Roc Subdivision in Mountain View, Puna Friday morning (July 2nd).

The initial call came in at 6:23 am Friday morning and HFD crews from the Kea'au, Pāhoa, and Volcano Fire Stations along with Battalion 1 and HPD Officers from the Puna Patrol responded to the scene located at the 11-1600 block of Alapua Street in the Eden Roc Subdivision.

Upon the arrival of emergency crews, reports came in from nearby residents reporting residence (described as a single-story family dwelling approximately 600 square feet in size) was reported to be fully engulfed in flames with heavy smoke visible throughout the Eden Roc Subdivision.

Once emergency crews arrived at the scene, HFD crews found the residence fully engulfed in flames with visible roof collapse noted. The fire had begun to also spread to a nearby shed (approximately 480 square feet in size) and HFD crews immediately worked to gain control of the fire utilizing a brush truck unit with a supply line connected from an engine in the front of the residence on Alapua Street. Water supply at the scene was very limited and utilized Tanker 10 from the Pāhoa Fire Station and Engine 19 from the Volcano Fire Station to shuttle water to the scene and from a water supply source outside of the Eden Roc Subdivision.

Despite that challenge, HFD crews had the fire under control at 6:50 am and commenced with overhaul operations. The fire declared extinguished at 8:24 am and the scene was turned over Fire Prevention Bureau Inspector, where they began their investigation into the fire.

Upon further investigation, HFD crews found out the residence was unoccupied with no occupants nearby at the time of the first fire report.

No injuries and cause of the fire remain under investigation.
