KEAHUA, MAUI –

A brush fire reported Tuesday afternoon is still active, according to Maui Fire Department.

Fire crews, including seven engine crews and three air units, fought the fire throughout the day.

While MFD says they have made progress, the fire is not officially considered “contained” until they have secured all perimeters.

Crews plan to work through the night to contain the fire.

They estimate over 2,500 acres have been burned, most of which are located between Haleakala Highway and Pulehu Road. 

There are currently no reported injuries or threats to homes.
