Mahalo to our brave firefighters for ensuring the Waikii Ranch community is protected from the 770-acre blaze.

“The fire is burning in light flashy fuels mostly grass and does not pose a threat to any roadways or private property,” a Hawaii County Civil Defense message stated. “Fire activity is slow at this time but continues to produce lots of smoke.”

“The Keamuku Maneuver Area (KMA) is the northernmost part of the Pohakuloa Training Area,” reports the US Army Garrison Hawaii. “The linear front of the fire spans approximately a half-mile and is about two miles from KMA’s nearest neighbor, the Waikii Ranch.”
