According to the Honolulu Fire Department, additional resources were needed after a “large glow” was reported triggering the callout.

HFD said the Kunia Village neighborhood was downwind of the fire causing the police to inform approximately 100 homeowners to evacuate for safety and health reasons at around 8:33 p.m.

“Initially we were in the backyard at my family’s house for bbq and one of my family members noticed it and asked if there was a bonfire — ‘somebody having a bonfire?'” said a witness of the fire Ash Mudd. “But then I looked and right away I could tell it wasn’t a bonfire. “At that point, I would say it was about 300 yards away and within half hour it was about a football field away. It happened very very fast.”

HFD explained that the fire came within 20 feet of some homes and it scorched approximately four acres of brush, trees and grass.

The fire was under control by 10:10 pm. And residents that evacuated were able to return to their homes at around 10:13 p.m.

After firefighters made sure to put out hot spots and smoldering trees in the burned areas, the fire was fully extinguished by 10:58 p.m. There were no reports of damage to homes, however, one firefighter sustained a minor injury while actively fighting the fire, according to HFD.
