Authorities on Maui have identified the man whose body was found next to a pickup truck following a brush fire.

The victim was identified of 58-year-old Greg Early. Authorities said Early is a part-time resident of Kihei and also lived in Oregon.

The brush fire, which broke out March 11, started along Honoapiilani Highway, between the Olowalu Dump and Kai Hele Ku-Launiupoko. It burned about 8 acres.
