Honolulu firefighters have contained two major fires.
The Kuwale fire, which started in Lualualei and ran to the back of Waianae Valley, blackening 1,200 acres, is now burning in the Waianae Forest Reserve. The state took over the firefighting today.
The Piliuka Place fire, which burned 1,000 acres, was called fully contained Friday, and fire crews kept watch over that blaze today, taking care of small flareups. But there is no danger to property or people, a fire official said.
