WAIMEA VALLEY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - As many as three acres have been burned in a brush fire in Waimea Valley on Tuesday evening, according to Honolulu fire officials.

Fire crews coordinated several air drops in an attempt to extinguish as many "hot spots" as they could in the area. Between 2.5 and three acres were burned in the blaze, according to HFD.

Air drops in the area have been suspended until the morning when crews plan on returning to assess the damage.

Honolulu fire crews say there are no structures in the immediate vicinity of the brush fire, and no one was injured.
