Rubbish fire flares up in Wailuku
A brush fire broke out around 2:37 p.m. Thursday at the end of Piihana Road in Wailuku, according to fire officials.
The fire burned a large pile of rubbish, with no structures threatened, Fire Services Chief Rylan Yatsushiro said Thursday evening.
Engine 1 from Wailuku and Tanker 10 from Kahului responded and contained the fire within an hour, he added. The property owner also brought heavy equipment to assist with breaking up the pile so crews could douse the fire more easily.
There were no damages or injuries, and the cause of the fire is undetermined, Yatsushiro said.
