Mayor Michael Victorino announced Monday morning that both Maui wildfires, “which burned 9,200 acres combined,” are 100 percent contained, according to our media partner KITV.

“Firefighters will continue mop-up work until the fires are declared extinguished,” Victorno said.

There were no reports of injuries or major property damage, although the fires required evacuations and road closures.

The public is advised to stay away from all burned areas in Central and South Maui.

The first fire began Thursday near the intersection of Kuihelani Highway and Waiko Road.

Something to consider...

Civil Beat is a small, independent newsroom that provides free content with no paywall. That means readership growth alone can’t sustain our journalism.

The truth is that less than 2% of our monthly readers are financial supporters. To remain a viable business model for local news, we need a higher percentage of readers-turned-donors.
