Maui firefighters were called to reports of a fire at 8:50 a.m. Tuesday which was located in the brush area between Keanuhea Street and Kula Highway. Firefighters from Makawao and Kahului responded. Once on scene, crews found what appeared to by a makeshift campsite completely burned. Air 1 was called to assist with water drops because of the remote location which was very difficult to access with firefighting vehicles. The fire was quickly contained and later declared extinguished around noon. There were no injuries reported and the cause of the fire is still unknown.
