spraying water on burned building

The aftermath of the Financial Management Office fire on the UH Mānoa campus on February 12, 2012.

On February 12, 2012 fire destroyed a building containing a portion of the University of Hawaiʻi System’s Financial Management Office on the UH Mānoa lower campus. The effort in the aftermath included people and offices across the UH System, Mānoa campus, State of Hawaiʻi and Honolulu Fire Department.

A special mahalo to everyone involved for making the cleanup and recovery as smooth and safe as possible. We sincerely appreciate the outpouring of offers of assistance and extending patience and understanding as the Financial Management Office recovers from this devastating event.
