HONOLULU -

Clean up still underway at the Marco Polo high rise following Friday's fire.

Island Insurance companies shedding light on its claims Thursday.

The company has 43 policy holders in the building and said as of today, 18 claims have come in.

They range from the 9th to 35th floor.

One of the company's policy holders lives directly across from where the fire started.

That unit was deemed a total loss.

President and CEO John Schapperle told Island News its clients are covered and will just have to pay their deductibles ranging between $500 and $1000.

"when I see the TV reports or when I drive by the building. What I see, of course, you saw the fire the smoke and the black but what you don't realize is the extent of the water down the floors and until that's all out of there. I'd expect it can go below 9 at this time," Schapperle said. 

Shapperle says his company also sent a letter to all of its policy holders to be aware of asbestos in the building.

Island Insurance has yet to confirm if asbestos is present but wants their clients to be cautious.
