Man, 82, escapes fire in Waipahu apartment

An 82-year-old man escaped a fire that broke out Monday in his apartment in Waipahu.

Shortly after 9:20 a.m., firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire at the two-bedroom apartment at Kunia Terrace, a three-story residential building at 94-049 Waipahu St.

Resident Dionisio Impelido Sr. said he was sleeping on his living room couch when he woke up to flames coming from his adult son’s bedroom.

Impelido managed to escape his apartment without injury. Impelido lives in the apartment with his girlfriend and son. His girlfriend was not home at the time of the fire and his son was outside of the unit when the fire broke out.

When firefighters arrived, they saw smoke and flames coming from the apartment’s rear window.

Neighbors grabbed a hose from one of the building’s fire hose cabinets and sprayed water at the apartment to help reduce the spread of the blaze before firefighters arrived.

Honolulu Fire Department spokesman Capt. Scot Seguirant said firefighters brought the fire under control shortly after 9:30 a.m. and extinguished it at 9:46 a.m.
