Police and Fire


Brush fire closes H-1 freeway lane

A 2-acre brush fire forced police to close one lane of the H-1 freeway yesterday during rush-hour traffic.

The fire started at about 3:50 p.m. along the Waianae-bound side of H-1, past the North-South Road onramp and below the Grace Pacific quarry, said Honolulu fire Capt. Robert Main.

Twenty-two firefighters responded with four engines, three tankers and a helicopter, Main said. Grace Pacific also provided a tanker to help supply water.

The fire was extinguished shortly before 7 p.m., Main said.

No one was injured and no property was damaged.

The cause has not been determined.
