(KHNL) - It's only been summer for a little more than a week. But if the past 8 days are any indication, it's going to be very hot and dry for a while.
It's those dry conditions that helped fuel a brushfire on Maui.
But we finally have good news in the battle to extinguish the flames.
Shortly after 6:30 Friday night, officials on Maui announced the fire is now 100% contained.
Fire fighters have been battling the flames for three days.
And in that time, the fire destroyed two houses and part of a tomato farm.
One of the homes was located in Launiupoko - a subdivision which was evacuated Thursday night.
Families were allowed to return to the area hours later.
The Hawaii Air National guard brought in a chinook helicopter equipped with a 2,000 gallon bucket to help fight the flames. They spent a few hours conducting water drops.
County fire crews will monitor the burn area Friday night for hot spots and any flare ups that may occur.
