HFD crews are on scene of an active structure fire that destroys vacant residences in Hawaiian Paradise Park Monday evening (November 18th).
The Hawaii Fire Department (HFD) along with the Hawaii Police Department (HPD) are on scene of an active and confirmed structure fire at residences in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision in Puna.
The initial call came in at 8:31 pm and HFD crews from the Kea'au, Paradise Park, Pahoa, Waiakea, and Central Fire Stations along with Battalion 1 and volunteers from Hawaiian Paradise Park responded to the scene located at the 15-1700 block of 15th Avenue in Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision.
Upon the arrival of HFD crews, neighbors reported a vacant two-story structure (described to be approximately 5,000 square feet in size) was fully engulfed in flames and slowly spreading to surrounding overgrown brush.
Once HFD crews arrived on scene, they found the two-story residences fully engulfed in flames and immediately went into an offensive and defensive mode of attack to gain control of fire. They also determined the structure was vacant/abandoned with no injuries to report.
At this time, HFD crews remain on scene and fire is currently active and not under control.
