UPDATE: Fire personnel from Engine 10 in Kahului responded to a report of a vehicle fire on Kapoli Street at approximately 10:10 p.m., on Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2015.  Upon arrival on scene, crews found a late model Honda Civic fully engulfed in fire.  Maui Fire Captain Paul Haake said the vehicle was being driven by a female who stopped in the Māʻalaea area to investigate smoke coming from under the dashboard area.  Capt.
