House fire, brush fire near Kapalua intentionally set
Maui County fire investigators say a house fire and a brush fire near Kapalua Friday morning were intentionally set.
Firefighters were sent to a brush fire just north of D.T. Fleming Beach Park at just before 2:45 a.m.
While extinguishing the brush fire, fire crews noticed the garage wall and kitchen entryway at a house on Honoapiilani Highway was on fire. Both fires were quickly brought under control just after 3 a.m.
The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire. Damage to the home was estimated at $3,000.
An investigation is ongoing.
