There's a reason why West Maui was the first area in Maui that we covered with a Community Wildfire Protection Plan: it's the most fire-prone region of the County.
Mahalo to Maui Fire Department for their hard work in keeping three simultaneous brush fires contained!
"Maui firefighters were busy Thursday after receiving calls for three separate brush fires within an hour in West Maui.
At 10:50 a.m., fire crews responded to multiple reports of a brush fire on Kai Hele Ku Street in Launiupoko. A Lahaina ladder crew arrived at 11 a.m. and was able to contain a grass fire found burning on the north side of Kai Hele Ku Street, just below the roundabout at Haniu Street. The fire burned just over one acre of grass."
