WAIAWA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Firefighters have contained a brush fire near the H-2 Freeway Wednesday evening. 

Fire officials say crews were dispatched around 12:10 p.m.

HFD battled the flames on the ground and in the air. Some 50 personnel total responded. 

Crews reported the flames were contained before 8 p.m. The fire burned about 20 acres.

No structures were threatened or damaged. 

HFD says the main issue was accessibility to the fire. Rough terrain in the area made it challenging to fight the flames.
