  In the wake of the 2017 Marco Polo condo fire, it has come to the public's attention that many of Honolulu's high rise residential buildings do not have sprinkler systems. Fire officials said that had there been a sprinkler system in place, the Marco Polo fire would have been doused in a matter of minutes.
