    Firefighters pulled in hoses after responding to a brush fire atop Mariner’s Ridge tonight.

A downed power line sparked two fires in Mariner’s Ridge this evening.

One fire spread near homes and a second fire was located further up the ridge. Five Honolulu Fire Department units responded to the fires that were fully contained by 7:27 p.m.

HFD said strong wind conditions challenged the efforts of firefighters. Less than one acre was burned and no structures were damaged. No injuries were reported.
