A section of Kunia Road in Wahiawa was reopened about 6:40 p.m. Wednesday after being closed several hours as firefighters battled a brush fire near the Hawaii Country Club.
The road was closed from Anonui Street to Kunia Drive on Wednesday. Ming Fai Wong had been waiting for six hours along Anonui Street for Kunia Road to open.
Farmer Viane Scanlan waited in a van, along Anonui Street, for Kunia Road to open on Wednesday. The Honolulu Fire Department said a total of 21 units and 62 personnel were on the scene of the brush fire, along with Air 1.
The fire, which was burning for most of Wednesday afternoon, branched off into two different areas, said HFD spokesman Capt. Scot Seguirant.
The Wailua side of the blaze was reported at 75 percent contained just before 6 p.m. Wednesday, while the Palawai side was 50 percent contained.
The Palawai side of the fire was moving toward the Kunia Farm lots, where structures were possibly being threatened on Wednesday.
Honolulu police officers monitor traffic at the closure of Kunia Road and Anonui Street on Wednesday.
