Maui first responders were called to two separate brush fires on Friday and Saturday.

Kahului police officers were able to extinguish a brush fire Friday evening in the KCC Park by the tennis courts on Onehee Street.

Shortly after 8 o’clock Engine 10 and Tanker 10 responded to the call but police officers were able to extinguish the fire before the crew’s arrival.

Saturday Kula firefighters responded to a reported brush fire along Kula Highway in Keokea.

Around 5 a.m. fire officials arrived in the area of mile post 18 on Kula Highway where crews found grass near the highway ablaze. It took nearly an hour for the fire to be extinguished.

No structures were threatened in both incidents and the cause of the fires are undetermined at this time.
