HAWAII KAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu firefighters responded to a blaze in Makapu'u Thursday morning.

The initial call came in at around 6:15 a.m.

Eighteen firefighters hiked out to an unattended camp fire.

Firefighters had the flames under control at 7:15 a.m. The fire was extinguished at 8 a.m.

"We were at Koko Crater. Right when we got up, we were looking at the sunrise and saw fire coming out," witness Jevin Guieb said. "One of our buddies called it in."

No injuries were reported.

Fire officials want to remind the public that conditions are extra dry during the summer, so be careful while using fire in open areas.
