A fire prompted the closure of Highway 11 in Kau just south of Kona on Hawaii island Friday.
Police said the road near mile marker 14 was closed today for about an hour, then a lane of traffic was re-opened at 4:34 p.m.
The road was closed after tree branches touching electrical wires caught fire near the road, police said.
