Big Island highway re-opened after brush fires

Route 190, also known as Mamalahoa Highway, in North Kona on the Big Island was re-opened late this afternoon after being closed due to multiple brush fires, the Hawaii island Police Department said.

Police said at about 5:30 p.m. that the road, which had been closed from the 15 mile marker to the 29 mile marker, was now open.

“While the majority of the fires have been extinguished, motorists are asked to drive carefully as Hawaii Fire Department personnel are still working in the area,” the police said.

“Anyone with information regarding suspicious activity relative to these brush fires are asked to call the Hawaii Police Department’s dispatch center at 935-3311. It is unknown how long this road closure will be in effect as the Hawaii Fire Department crews address these brush fires,” the news release said.
