Overnight fire burns approximately 15 acres

The Honolulu Fire Department says a wild land fire near Kaena Point in Waialua burned approximately 15 acres of brush.

HFD says nine units, including the department’s Air 1 helicopter, responded to the fire about a mile past the end of Farrington Highway about 6:30 p.m. Friday. They quickly got the fire under control but due to darkness and hazardous terrain, suspended their operation.

When the units returned this morning, they found that what was left of the fire had put itself out, said Capt. James Todd, HFD spokesman.

There were no reports of property damage or injuries.
