WAIKOLOA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Big Island officials have closed Highway 190 in both directions again due to brush fires at the 16 and 23 mile post. Motorist are being asked to avoid the area as crews address the fires.

Officials say Tuesday evening's fires look suspicious in origin.    

Traffic is being re-routed to Waikoloa Drive and the old Saddle road for those heading south on Route 190, and to Kaiminani Drive for those heading north on Route 190.

Expect delays and drive with caution as crews will be going to and from these locations. 

Crews have been battling brush fires in the area since Monday evening.
