At least three people were killed and 12 injured after a fire broke out in an apartment building on the outskirts of Honolulu, Hawaii's largest city, authorities say, shooting dead two police officers at the scene of the blaze that appears to have been set on fire, while two women remain missing. Police Chief Susan Ballard said the two officers, Officer David Enriquez and Officer Michael O'Hara, were killed.
Honolulu Fire Chief Manuel Neves said the fire spread quickly, destroying seven homes and damaging several others. Officers were shot in the response, and the Maui Veterans Highway was closed, the Honolulu Police Department said. About 1,000 people in an apartment building on the outskirts of the city were evacuated as the fire spread rapidly across the area.
Most residents could return, the authority said Saturday, but three floors remained closed until the cleanup was completed. Now that the families are safe and no materials have been damaged by the fire, reconstruction can begin. Once the family is safe, it is time to assess fire and smoke damage and begin rebuilding, he said.
