Maui fire investigators say a fire started on the roof of the Hawaiian Canoe Club Hale Thursday night was intentionally set.
Witnesses told firefighters they saw a male in his late teens taking a cigarette lighter to the roof covering around 8:30 p.m. The fire damaged a 100 square foot section of the structure before a fire sprinkler system extinguished the flames. A brand new outrigger canoe which was stored in the Hale was also partially damaged.
The Hawaiian Canoe Club Hale is located at the South side of Kahului Harbor, next to Hoaloha Park.
