OLOWALU, MAUI (HAWAII NEWS NOW) -

A brush fire at the Maui Paintball field scorched about one and a half acres of land Saturday morning.

Maui firefighters were notified of the fire that broke out near milepost 16 of Honoapiilani Highway shortly before 10 a.m and were able to fully extinguish it by 11:17 a.m. 

While crews couldn't determine the cause of the fire, they discovered a drone aircraft near the center of the burned area.

MFD says it is still unsure whether the drone had anything to do with the fire.
