Brush fires disrupt traffic, close highway

Two brush fires along Mokulele Highway in South Maui on Thursday, May 16, led Maui police to shut down the highway for less than half-an-hour as fire crews quickly doused the flames, fire officials said.

Around 1:10 p.m., fire crews were dispatched to two brush fires along Mokulele Highway, about half a mile south of the Maui Humane Society.

One fire was 150 feet by 15 feet on the median, while the other was a 100-foot-by-5-foot fire on the west shoulder of the Kihei-bound lane. Both fires burned grass in the area.

The fire was under control and extinguished by 1:48 p.m. The cause of the fire was undetermined.

The Kihei and Kahului fire crews and a Kahului water tanker responded to the fire.
