HONOLULU (KHNL) - The wildfire in Waialua has affected two public schools on the Waianae Coast.
Smoke from the fire was drifting over the Waianae Mountains and settling in Makaha Valley.
Students at Waianae High School were released from classes early Tuesday and parents of students at Makaha Elementary School were told they could pick up their children early.
The out-of-control blaze has covered more than four and a-half square miles since it began Sunday.
Meanwhile, the city and state will be eligible for federal funds to cover much of the cost of fighting the fire.
