Firefighters gained 80 percent containment on a fire that has burned 24 acres since it first started Sunday night.  Officials confirmed the Happy Valley fire was sparked by fireworks.  No homes were damaged and firefighters continue to monitor the burn area.

According to the Department of Water Supply, a safe water level for the tank affected in Happy Valley when power was shut off Sunday evening has been restored. The public response to the County’s request yesterday for water use conservation by customers in the Central and South Maui during that period is greatly appreciated.
