Fire at Bali Hai Restaurant

22kauai messaged me that she could see a fire in Princeville. I texted the GM of HBR and he called me and said the fire was at the Bali Hai Restaurant. I do not know what happened but there is no restaurant left. Some damage was done to the lower level where the sundry shop is too. The area near Happy Talk was not damaged.

No one was hurt and no condos were damaged.

I will get more later.

Yes, it's been going for a while.

I can see it well from my balcony.

The smoke's cleared.

From above Princeville, I couldn't see any flames, but threre was a good plume of smoke for a while there.

Well, I hope no one is hurt and the insurance is paid up.

Everyone is fine. No one was hurt, thank goodness.

The smoke is pretty much gone, but the fire dept is keeping people away for another few hours to make sure there is nothing still burning.

I know the resort's insurance is paid up but the restaurant is owned by someone else. The GM's office sustained some damage as did the associations units below the restaurant where the fitness center and sundry shop are located. We don't know if it was fire or water damage yet.

I will keep you all posted.

Good thing my HBR wedding was yesterday, not today! Tonight's wedding was across the bay at Wainiha and I could see the smoke billowing out of HBR from 5:45 on.... I sat on the beach until sunset, took several photos of the smoke with my iPhone, and watched the smoke dissipate somewhat after 7pm. The firehouse was still empty as I drove by it at 7:45pm. Must have been a huge fire!

Jebett, do you know if this will affect the opening of Happy Talk?? I hope not, the way you all talk about this place, I really wanted to go there when it finally opens.
