Lahaina brush fire is 90 percent contained



A brush fire that started Sunday night above the Lahaina Civic Center was about 90 percent contained yesterday, a Maui spokeswoman said.

Fire crews were still mopping up and monitoring the area for hot spots, said county spokeswoman Mahina Martin.

The fire burned vacant land about a mile from Honoapiilani Highway.

Two other fires that burned  Sunday on sugar cane land near Baldwin Ave. and Mokulele were being handled by Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Co., Martin said.
