Honolulu fire crews have contained a brush fire that broke out in a remote area of Moanalua Valley.
According to fire department Capt. Gary Lum, the fire broke out shortly after 12 p.m. Saturday about one and-a-half miles from the Koolau summit. Crews had to be airlifted to the fire because the area wasn't easily accessible. A department helicopter also made water drops.
The fire scorched about ten acres. No homes were threatened.
