Honolulu firefighters and police were responding to a small brush fire at Koko Head District Park that closed the popular hiking trail and rifle range this afternoon.
Honolulu Fire Capt. James Todd said the seven-acre fire started about noon on the east side of Koko Crater Trail, between the trail and rifle range.
Firefighters were using a helicopter to drop water on the flames.
Police said firefighters were evacuating hikers off the trail and officers will close the trail until the fire is out.
A Koko Head Shooting Complex employee said police also closed the range and employees were on standby to reopen if allowed.
