Maui County lifeguards closed a south Maui beach for a couple of hours this afternoon after a shark was sighted within 10 feet of shore.
County water safety official Archie Kalepa said the shark was 12 to 14 feet long and that water safety officials closed Big Beach at Makena State Park from 2 to 4 p.m.
Kalepa said the beach was reopened after water and coastal patrols saw no shark for two hours.
