Brush Fire Burns 10 Acres in Haʻikū
September 13th, 2014 · Comments Off · Comments Via Facebook (0) · Maui News
 

Fire crews are conducting mop-up operations at a 10 acre brush fire reported at 12:04 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014 off of ʻŌʻili Road in Haʻikū.


As of Friday afternoon, September 12, 2014, the most distal front of the June 27th lava flow had reached a straight-line distance of 14.9 km (9.3 miles) from the source vent on the northeast flank of the Puʻu ʻŌʻō cone. The flow has continued in the northeast direction that it assumed in the middle of the week and is now only 171 meters (0.1 miles) from the boundary of the Kaohe Homesteads community. The flow is still within thick forest, so that dense plumes of smoke are created as vegetation is consumed. Small breakouts (visible as plumes in the middle distance) are also active closer to Puʻu ʻŌʻō, roughly midway along the length of the June 27th flow.
