Brush fire that burned in Hawaii Kai’s Kamilo Nui Valley is out, firefighters say

The brush fire that burned bright over Hawaii Kai Thursday afternoon has been deemed out by Honolulu firefighters.

The fire broke out at around 5 p.m. along the ridge in Kamilo Nui Valley.

Firefighters said it was considered out Thursday morning after crews went out to assess the blaze at first light.

Roughly 20 acres have burned in an area that was difficult to get to on foot, and even harder in the dark.

Earlier Wednesday evening, a helicopter helped drop water on the flames, but it had to scale back operations once the sun went down.

Firefighters say they will now look at the aftermath of the fire to assess the damage.
