A small fire caused about $150,000 worth of damage Monday evening to a kitchen at the Waikoloa Village Golf Club.

Eight units responded to the 6:16 p.m. alarm, according to a written Fire Department statement. The first unit arrived on scene at 6:25 p.m. The fire was reported under control at 6:50 p.m. and extinguished at about 7 p.m.

Upon arrival, firefighters saw heavy smoke coming from the building and forced their way into the building through the front door. Roof ventilation allowed smoke to escape and flames to be extinguished, fire officials said, and the fire was confined to the kitchen.

An estimated $500,000 worth of property was saved, according to the Fire Department.
