A brush fire along the Kahekili Highway in Waiehu on Saturday forced the temporary closure of the road for three hours as crews contained the blaze, officials said.

The fire burned an area 800-feet long and 30-feet wide between Makaʻala Drive and Waiehu Beach Road, said Maui Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga.

The fire was reported at 2:42 p.m., and was extinguished by 6 p.m., said FS Chief Maianaga.
