Maui firefighters have nearly contained a four-acre brush fire sparked by a vehicle accident in Pulehu this afternoon.
A two-car collision on Pulehu Road appears to have started the fire, the Maui Fire Department said in a news release.
Fire crews were called to the scene at 4:50 p.m., and assisted the vehicle occupants and the fire, which was about a quarter of an acre when they arrived.
Steady winds caused the brush fire to grow quickly, the fire department said.
The vehicle occupants were not injured, MFD said.
At 6:30 p.m., the fire was nearly contained.
Crews will remain on scene to mop up hot spots and fully extinguish the blaze.
No homes or structures were threatened.
