  • 5000 acres- Volcano National Park, HI

    VOLCANO, Hawaii (AP) - Cooler temperatures and light mist on
    Saturday assisted firefighters battling a brush fire at Hawaii
    Volcanoes National Park, the National Park Service said Saturday.
    Two separate fires have scorched 5,000 acres on the western edge
    of Kilauea within the park, officials said.
    Four helicopters are being used to drop water on the perimeter
    of the fire to contain the blaze and to protect the forests.
    "It takes just a small breeze and the forest understory begins
    to flame," firefighter Kupono McDaniel said.
    Additional fire crews from Mendocino National Forest in
    California were scheduled to arrive Sunday to assist Volcano
    firefighters.
    The fires were sparked by lava last week and have picked up in
    recent days due to dry, hot weather conditions.
    No structures or visitors were threatened.
