HONOLULU (AP) - A fire that broke out at a U.S. Coast Guard housing facility along the southern shore of Oahu caused an estimated $270,000 in damage.

Hawaii News Now reports (https://bit.ly/2mdR75u) that Honolulu fire officials say a circuit breaker that malfunctioned was the cause of the Saturday morning blaze in Aina Haina.

Firefighters had arrived to find smoke and flames coming from the basement of the two-story structure.

The building had been unoccupied at the time and fire crews were able to bring the flames under control in less than 30 minutes.
