PUKALANI, MAUI (HAWAIINEWSNOW) - Maui firefighters were kept busy on Wednesday as they responded to two brush fires just hours apart.

The fire was extinguished by 1:15 p.m. The cause remains undetermined.
About five hours later, firefighters responded to a brush fire reported at Mokuhau Park in Happy Valley.
Crews arrived 11 minutes later to find a 20-square-foot fire in grass and brush between the Mokuahu Park basketball court and Iao Stream.
A 12-year-old girl that lives in the area was reported to have accidentally started the fire with a firework.
That fire was extinguished by 7 p.m.
