HONOLULU (KHON2) — On the Big Island, the Steam Vents parking lot will be temporarily closed Tuesday, Nov. 18, as the park continues its efforts against little fire ants.

Only the parking lot and the trail from the parking lot to steaming bluff will be closed from 8 a.m. to noon.

Detections of the pests have gone down by at least 99 percent since the park began treating the area in February.
