Maui firefighters extinguished a shed fire that also burned macadamia nut and banana trees in Wailuku on Saturday.

The fire started just before 11:30 a.m. in the Wailuku Country Estates neighborhood and burned the small shed to the ground, said Maui Fire Department spokesman Edward Taomoto.

By the time firefighters arrived about 10 minutes after the initial call, the blaze had spread to nearby macadamia nut and banana trees.

Firefighters extinguished the fire by 12:05 p.m.

The cause of the fire was undetermined, and damage was estimated at $1,000.
