Happy Valley wildfire now 100 percent containedJuly 13, 2010, 5:11 PM HST · Updated July 13, 5:11 PM 0 Comments
Although not yet considered extinguished, Fire Department officials report that as of 2:30 p.m. today the Happy Valley fire is under control with 100% containment. Firefighters will monitor the burn area and perimeter tonight.
The fire was sparked by fireworks on Sunday night at Mokuhau Road. The fire initially resulted in road closures and a power shut down that in turn led to water conservation requests. A safe water level for the tank affected in Happy Valley has since been restored.
The blaze burned a total of 24 acres and destroyed a coup for a pet, but homes and residences in the densely populated subdivision were spared.
