Firefighters deem Maui cane field fire suspicious

A brush fire scorched about 30 acres of fallow sugar cane fields in Pulehu.

The Maui Fire Department considers the cause of the fire suspicious because it started at two separate locations that grew into one large fire.

The brush fire started sometime before 9 p.m. Wednesday, approximately two miles east of the Hawaiian Cement batching plant off of Mokulele Highway. Firefighters contained the fire at 7 a.m. Thursday.

Firefighters remained at the scene last night to monitor hot spots.

No structures were threatened and no injuries were reported.
