Maui firefighters battle three fires

Maui firefighters extinguished three small brush fires today.

A motorist reported the first fire along Pulehu Road at about 5:15 a.m., said Maui Fire Department spokesman Edward Taomoto.

Kula firefighters responded and found two 100-square foot brush fires, about 30 feet apart, near the road’s shoulder, mauka of Opalipali Place.

Crews extinguished both blazes by 5:45 a.m.

At about 1:40 p.m., firefighters responded to a 2,500-square foot grass-and-rubbish fire in a vacant lot off Honoapiilani Highway near Prison Street. That fire was extinguished at about 2:30 p.m.

Firefighters were unable to determine the cause of all three fires.
