A family of six has been displaced from their home on Poipu Road on Kauai following a fire that broke out at approximately 4:15 a.m. Tuesday.

One adult female occupant sustained minor injuries as a result of the fire. She was treated and released at the scene.

Firefighters from the Koloa station were on scene by 4:17 a.m. and were quickly joined by crews from the Kalaheo and Lihue stations, as well as the on-duty Battalion Chief.

The fire was under control within minutes, but the three-bedroom home is considered a total loss.

Fire inspectors remain at the scene to investigate the origin and cause of the fire. Foul play is not suspected.

Officials estimate roughly $300,000 in damages to the structure and its content.

Representatives from the American Red Cross responded to assist the family.
