Maui brush fires extinguished on Sunday and Monday

The Maui Fire Department reported today that its crews extinguished two small brush fires late Sunday night and early Monday morning.

At 11:11 p.m. on Sunday, Kahului firefighters responded to a brush fire reported on Pulehu Road and found a strip of grass and brush burning next to the roadway about a mile mauka of the Central Maui Landfill. The fire was extinguished at 11:51 p.m. The cause of the fire was undetermined, and no structures were threatened.

At 5:06 a.m. on Monday, Lahaina firefighters responded to another brush fire on the Lahaina Bypass near Hokiokio Place. Firefighters arrived at 5:16 a.m. and found a quarter-acre of brush on fire next to Kauaula stream, about 100 yards mauka of the Lahaina Bypass. Crews had the fire under control at 5:54 a.m. and extinguished at 7 a.m.

The fire burned a homeless encampment next to the stream as well as the surrounding brush, and appeared to be from a cooking fire. No one was on scene when crews arrived. No injuries were reported.
