Fire damages Waikiki hotel
HONOLULU - A historic Waikiki hotel was damaged after an intentionally set fire singed one of its exterior walls before dawn.
Honolulu Fire Capt. Terry Seelig said Wednesday that the fire was set inside a large trash bin next to the iconic Moana Surfrider Hotel. No one was injured.
Seelig said that the flames rose six stories to the roof of a wing of the hotel. The blaze broke some first- and second-floor windows.
About 30 firefighters responded shortly before 3 a.m. Starwood Hotels spokeswoman Marsha Wienert said that more than 1,200 guests evacuated.
Honolulu police are opening a first-degree arson investigation.
