Firefighters battle brush fire in Kalaeloa

Honolulu firefighters returned to Kalaeloa Friday to mop up a brush fire in Kalaeloa.

The fire was first reported Thursday just after 1 p.m. near Franklin D. Roosevelt Ave. and Enterprise St.

It sparked in heavy keawe and deep brush, generating large amounts of smoke.

In all, eight companies and approximately 26 personnel responded Thursday, according to fire officials.

One company went back Friday morning to put out smoldering embers after smoke was reported.

The fire was considered extinguished just after noon.

No homes were threatened and no evacuations were made, but homeowners didn’t take any chances.

“I said, you know what, just in case, I’d better come back to my place and shoot water down,” said resident Glynn Crawford Jr.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
