Brush fire causes thick smoke near Wahiawa

WAHIAWA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

State and county fire crews are battling a brush fire near Wahiawa. Officials tell Hawaii News Now that the fire is burning above the Helemano Military Reservation.

An HFD spokesperson says the fire actually began a week ago on state forest reserve property, however Monday's strong winds fanned the flames and it reached a grove of Eucalytpus trees which is causing the smoky conditions.

The fire is not endangering any homes.
