KFD controlled burns in Anahola Wednesday

ANAHOLA – The Kaua‘i Fire Department Fire Prevention Bureau will be conducting prescribed burns in Anahola near the surf break commonly known as Crack 14 on Wednesday.

The burn will cover approximately 8.2 acres.

“The prescribed burns are part of the ongoing fire mitigation efforts to control brush fires in the Anahola area,” said KFD Fire Prevention Capt. Jeremie Makepa.

The prescribed burns have been approved by State officials and will be conducted when the weather allows. KFD prevention officials anticipate prescribed burns to also occur in November and December, with public notifications to follow. The burn permit is good for one year and covers 400 acres of land.

    DHHL DLNR and KFD caring for the Anahola DUMP. For years we have reported illegal trash dumping and fire bugs burning up the area. Crack heads and Illegal camps that’s been littering and causing an unsafe environment and destroying one of the most beautiful coastal shorelines in the world.

    DHHL, did you seriously think of every possible way to remedy this ongoing problem? Do you have the knowledge of the area and type of trash that’s been dumped there for years? And the amount of houseless people that’s living in that area? I’m sure you do.
    I’m a Homestead lessee for over fifty years and we have suffered since the Amfac sugarcane burning days.
    DHHL, KFD, isn’t there a more environmental friendly plan? Have you thought of every possible way before this control burning?

    Thank you KFD and DHHL, DLNR
