An autopsy will be conducted today on an unidentified man whose remains were found in a Hawaiian Ocean View Estates home in Ka`u destroyed by fire Monday evening.
Firefighters, responding to a 9:09 p.m. alarm arrived to find the 500-square foot dwelling on Bamboo Lane fully engulfed in flames. The fire was brought under control within 20 minutes, but was not extinguished until after midnight because the nearest water source
was approximately four miles away and had to be shuttled in.
The cause is under investigation.
