A brush fire got a little too close to comfort for some Makakilo homeowners Monday afternoon.

The fire was first reported at 2:40 p.m. in a gulch off Limukele Street.

The fire came within yards of one woman’s home before crews managed to get it under control.

“Panic kind of set in and when I came in, I saw fire trucks farther up that way,” said Makakilo resident Marina Stading. “It was a little bit of a relief to me that it wasn’t my house, but when I saw out here what was going on, I was like oh, it’s spreading.”

Fortunately no homes were actually damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
