The Latest on a deadly fire in a Honolulu high-rise apartment building (all times local):

3:35 p.m.

Police aren’t treating the Honolulu high-rise apartment building where three people died in a fire as a crime scene.

Honolulu Police spokesman Capt. Rade Vanic said Monday the case is classified as an unattended death. He says even though the criminal investigation division is assigned to the case, it’s not considered a crime at this point.

The fire department is still investigating. Vanic says police haven’t initiated an arson investigation.

He says police and firefighters released the scene back to building security, which would be responsible for blocking off access to the floor where Friday’s fire originated.

The morning after the blaze in the Marco Polo building, some people were able to take photos of the charred 26th floor.

The fire department says the blaze began in unit 2602.
