Kalanianaole Highway reopens near Sea Life Park

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Kalanianaole Highway from Queen’s Beach to Sea Life Park was reopened around 5:15 p.m. after it was shut down by a brush fire, police said Wednesday afternoon.

The brush fire had blocked Waimanalo-bound traffic on the highway from Queen’s Beach to Sea Life Park.

Firefighters have contained 50 percent of the fire but were still battling the blaze on the Hawaii Kai side of the highway.

The fire had burned about 10 acres near the Makapuu Light House trail near Queen’s Beach, said Honolulu fire spokesman Capt. David Jenkins.

Jenkins said the cause of the fire was unknown at this time.

Firefighters received the call at 2:43 p.m. and were battling it more than an hour and a half later.
