At around 5:15 p.m. the Honolulu Fire Department responded to the hotel for a building fire. Firefighters found no smoke or flames coming from the building.
Firefighters were led to the laundry room on the second floor and, while using a thermal imaging camera, observed elevated temperatures and light smoke in the ductwork.
