Multiple city and federal firefighting crews are battling what appears to be a large brush fire in an area located on federal property along the Waipio Peninsula.
Plumes of white smoke could be seen from as far away as Downtown Honolulu on Tuesday afternoon, and witnesses at the scene noted several helicopters dumping water on the flames.
The fire broke out around 1 p.m., scorching about 20 acres of land.
There was no immediate indication as to the size or cause of the fire. No injuries have been reported.
