  On the Garden Island a major blaze took place today at the Coco Palms Hotel site.

The location, made famous by Elvis Presley in “Blue Hawai`i” in the early 1960’s and then hit hard by Hurricane Iniki years later, appeared to be nearly engulfed by flames. The property remained among the only locations not renovated following the 1992 hurricane. The hotel returned to the news recently as plans were announced to possibly seek foreign investment in the renovation of the resort property. A witness shot video of it and posted it online:
