Fire continues in remote wilderness above Wahiawa


The Department of Land and Natural Resources is battling a brush fire in a remote area of the Ewa Forest Reserve Sunday.

Honolulu firefighters initially responded to the call of the fire burning about a mile above California Avenue in Wahiawa at 4:01 p.m. Saturday.

Fire Capt. David Jenkins said the fire burned about 25 acres in "very steep and rugged terrain."

A crew went up to the fire Sunday and a helicopter planned to do water drops said DNLR spokeswoman Deborah Ward.

The Honolulu Fire Department helicopter assisted.
