Waianae Wildfire, Drought Conditions & Hawaii Man Killed in Vegas

Coming up tonight at 5 and 5:30 on Hawaii News Now...

DEVELOPING: ANOTHER WAIANAE WILDFIRE

Within the hour, yet another wildfire has ignited in Waianae. Fire crews are rushing back to the scene -- in the same area where they've spent most of the week fighting flames that came within inches of homes. We'll have the very latest info coming up at 5.

OFFICIALS WARN OF DRY WEATHER CONDITIONS

Also, evident by the spat of recent wildfires, a warning to tell you about tonight from weather officials: it's dry out there. Ramsay Wharton gives us an update from National Weather Service about possible drought conditions ahead. And Ben Gutierrez tells us what we can expect for the next few days in his seven day forecast.

HAWAII MAN KILLED IN LAS VEGAS

Also, a Waipahu man is killed in Las Vegas. Vegas police say he, allegedly, died at the hands of his own step-son.

COAST GUARD RIDE-ALONG

And, the U.S. Coast Guard gives us an exclusive ride-along in one of its state of the art, rescue aircraft. But it wasn't just a day of flying; watch the dramatic rescue of a surfer -- stranded at sea.

That's all tonight when you join me for Hawaii's most watched early news. See you at 5 & 5:30.

Aloha,

Shawn Ching
