Small brushfire is under control in Wahiawa

LAST UPDATED: 3:33 p.m. HST, Dec 9, 2012

Firefighters battled a small brush fire this afternoon in Wahiawa near where a 75-acre blaze burned two weeks ago, a Fire Department spokesman said. 

The fire was under control around 2:10 p.m., roughly 10 minutes after it was reported, Capt. Robert Main said. It flared up near Kamehameha Highway & Whitmore Avenue, by the Kukaniloko Birthing Stones.

At least 75 acres of agriculture land in the area was scorched by an overnight brush fire that started just before 9 p.m. Nov. 26. More than 62 city and federal firefighters worked to contain that blaze.

Main said the department is unsure whether the two fires are related.
