Hawaii sailor, 32, dead after going overboard

JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii (AP) - A 32-year-old sailor is dead after going overboard from a Hawaii-based ship.

The Navy says the man was pronounced dead Wednesday after a search and rescue swimmer pulled his body from the ocean.

The crew of the USS Russell had responded to a report of a man overboard while conducting operations about 50 miles off the coast of Oahu.

The sailor was a 2nd class petty officer who first reported to the USS Russell in January 2009. Release of his identity is pending until 24 hours after notification of next of kin.

An investigation is underway.

Police: Tenant intentionally set fire to Aiea home

AIEA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police say a fire that damaged an Aiea residence was intentionally set by the tenant, who was also seriously injured.

The 66-year-old man's identity has not been released, but he could face an arson charge when he gets out of the hospital. He sustained burns to his hands and head.

The fire broke at about 2 p.m. Thursday in a rental cottage located on Honomanu Street.

Honolulu Fire Department crews arrived to the scene within seven minutes and had flames under control within five minutes.

Witnesses told authorities they heard a loud explosion and saw the fire grow rapidly from the back of the structure.

Officials say a passing motorist, Lloyd Manamtam, saw the smoke, rushed up to the door, and pulled the 66-year-old man to safety.

Good Samaritan pulls man away from burning Aiea home

AIEA (HawaiiNewsNow)- A man in his 60s was seriously injured in a fire that destroyed a Honomanu Street home in Aiea. And he may have a passing motorist to thank for saving his life.

The fire began just before 2 p.m. in what was described as a rental cottage at 98-132 Honomanu Street. Crews arrived in seven minutes, and had the blaze under control in another five minutes, said Honolulu Fire Capt. Terry Seelig. "Witnesses reported it started near the back of the structure and grew rapidly," he said.

Lloyd Manamtam had just had lunch with his wife and happened to be driving by just as the fire began. He said he was the only one nearby, so he parked his car and ran to two houses on the lot. He knocked on the doors of a larger house that was undamaged, and then went to the back of the cottage before he was engulfed in the growing smoke. He was near the front of the cottage when he heard something.
