Honolulu Fire Department crews battled a brush fire in Haleiwa this afternoon that had spread from a vehicle fire off Kamehameha Highway. Three HFD units staffed with eight firefighters initially responded to a 911 call about the auto fire at 3:06 p.m. The first unit arrived at the scene at 3:14 p.m. and reported the blaze had developed into a rapidly moving brush fire, according to HFD.
