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.
