Firefighters were called to the scene just before 11:30 p.m.

Officials say the fire came within 100 feet of the homes along Puni Road, but firefighters were able to contain the blaze before it reached the structures.

The brush fire was deemed under control by midnight and extinguished by 1 a.m. Wednesday.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
