Fire breaks out in Century Center suite

A fire broke out in an office space in Century Center at the corner of Kapiolani Blvd. and Kalakaua Ave. Saturday afternoon.

A smoke detector set off the fire alarm.

The fire was reported to the Honolulu Fire Dept. at around 2:30 p.m. and was under control about a half-hour later.

Smoke was visible from the one-room fire on the eighth floor. No one was in the suite at the time of the fire, but people were evacuated from the building as a precaution.

A window was broken open in the process of extinguishing the fire.

Investigators determined a stove top had been left on overnight and ignited the cabinetry above it.

Damage is estimated at $40,000.
