Officials seek help in Puuanahulu wildfires


A recent series of wildfires in the Puuanahulu has prompted fire and police officials to ask people using the region to report any suspicious activity.

The latest fire sparked a little after midnight Feb. 17, south of the Kona hunter check station in the Puuanahulu Game Management Unit. Fire crews were able to extinguish the small brush fire quickly.

A county fire department investigator was called to the scene to look at the possibility this fire and three others were set intentionally.

More than 775 acres of mostly brush and grass burned, starting Feb. 11 in the same area.

DOFAW, the DLNR Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE) and the Hawaii County Fire and Police Departments encourage anyone with information on these fires, or anyone who spots unusual activity in the Puuanahulu area to call 9-1-1 or 643-DLNR.
