Kauai firefighters responded to four brush fires Wednesday.
No injuries were reported as a result of the fires in Kapaa, Waimea, Kekaha and Eleele.
According to a county press release, firefighters from the Kapaa fire station responded to the first fire shortly after 8 a.m. near Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital off of Kawaihau Road. The roughly 10-by-15-foot brush fire was quickly extinguished and firefighters cleared the scene about 8:20 a.m.
Firefighters from the Waimea and Hanapepe fire stations responded to a second fire around 11:30 a.m. on the makai side of Kaumualii Highway in Waimea near the Russian Fort Elizabeth.
Air 1 monitored the roughly-five-acre brush fire to ensure it did not spread across the highway. Fire crews were joined by personnel from Gay &Robinson, Inc., who assisted with water tankers and heavy equipment.
The fire was under control about noon and fully extinguished shortly after, the release said. Crews cleared the scene about 1:40 p.m.
Shortly before 5:30 p.m., Waimea firefighters were notified of a fire behind the old Kekaha Sugar Company mill. The roughly-2,000-square-foot fire was quickly extinguished.
About 8:15 p.m., Hanapepe firefighters responded to a brush fire near Glass Beach in Eleele. The 20-by-20 foot fire, which was along a cliff side, was contained by about 8:30 p.m.
The cause of the fires remains under investigation. Anyone with information about these fires is urged to contact the Kauai Police Department dispatch at 241-1711.
