Honolulu police have reopened Pohakupuna Road between Makule and Fort Weaver roads after a structure fire.

At 12:37 p.m. Friday, Honolulu firefighters were called to a home at 91-817 Pohakupuna Road.

By the time crews arrived, the single-family home was fully involved in fire and smoke.

A 53-year-old person managed to escape and was treated by paramedics.

The fire was under control by 1:19 p.m., but the house was considered a total loss, according to a department spokesperson. Officials have not yet provided a damage estimate.
