A fire broke out on Friday in a 36-story condominium tower in Honolulu, with media reporting that several people could be trapped in their homes, as firefighters battled the flames.

Images broadcast by bystanders on the Periscope streaming service showed thick black smoke pouring from the Marco Polo condominium building as orange flames raged on several floors.

Emergency responders were treating several people at the scene, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser newspaper said, citing fire officials.

Fire officials were also responding to reports of people trapped in their apartments, the paper added.
