WAHIAWA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A brush fire in the Wahiawa area near the Kukaniloko Birthing Stones has been contained as of Tuesday morning, according to the Honolulu Fire Department.

Fire crews responded to the scene near Kamananui Road at approximately 9:00 p.m. on Monday night. Fire officials say the affected area is on the agricultural side of Lake Wilson.

Officials say the fire burned approximately 75 acres. 

The fire was burning in an area with no water supply, so fire crews were forced to run hoses thousands of feet to battle the blaze.

No structures were being threatened, according to the Honolulu Fire Department officials.

The cause of the fire has not yet been reported.

We will have more on this developing story as it becomes available.
