Coming up on Hawaii News Now Monday

Happy Aloha Monday everyone!  Hope you enjoyed your 3 day weekend.  Here's a look at some of the stories we're working on for you tonight.

Now that the city is dumping its trash shipping plan, acting Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell tells us what's going to happen to the 20,000 tons of trash sitting at Campbell Industrial Park. The latest plan includes hauling some of it off to the Waimanalo Gulch Landfill.  We'll have more details tonight.

A large brushfire on the Big Island forces officials to close a portion of Saddle Road.  It flared up yesterday at 9:30 AM at the U.S. Army's Pohakuloa Training area. High winds and dry conditions have made it tough for firefighters battling the blaze. Guy Hagi tells us if any relief is in sight in his weather forecast.

On a much lighter note, a mother in China gives birth to a really big bundle of joy!

Her ten-month-old baby is the same size of an average six-year-old!  You'll have to see it to believe it tonight on Hawaii News Now at 5.
