North Shore Fire Moves to Army Property

SCHOFIELD BARRACKS (KHNL)  - The brushfire that has been burning along the North Shore's Kaukonahua Road since Sunday spread onto Army property Tuesday morning.

Safety and fire experts are continuing to monitor the fire and take action as necessary.  If the fire continues along its current path towards the impact area, safety and fire experts anticipate the fire will lose strength due to a lack of vegetation in the area.

The Federal Fire Department, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, and the Honolulu Police Department, as well as numerous Army officials, including the garrison's Installation Fire and Safety Office are on scene assisting with fire control efforts.

There is currently no fire danger to any of the military housing areas on Schofield, and no housing areas are being evacuated at this time.
