KAPOLEI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Honolulu Fire Department is investigating a string of suspicious roadside brush fires that broke out Monday evening.

Nearly 30 firefighters responded to the first call at around 6:30 p.m. and extinguished the three fires – all located near the eastbound lanes of the H-1 Freeway, between the Makakilo off-ramp and North-South Road -- by 7:15 p.m. Each burned less than a half acre.

Investigators believe all three fires are suspicious because they started around the same time in roughly the same area.

HFD is asking for witnesses to come forward.
