Early morning apartment fire near the Ala Wai Canal

Honolulu firefighters responded to a reported fire on the eighth floor of the Ala Wai Skyrise condominium near the Ala Wai Canal early Friday morning.

It happened just before 1 a.m. and forced an evacuation of part of the condo. Firefighters had it under control within minutes but not before a lot of smoke was generated.

A portion of University Avenue near Kapiolani Boulevard was closed. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
