KALAMAULA MAUKA, Hawaii -

Molokai police are investigating the cause of three separate brush fires found burning at the same location.

Molokai firefighters responded to the Kalamaula Mauka area and said they found the fires in light flashy fuels.

Two fires were burning at the corner of Likelike Avenue and Pookela Street. They merged into one fire approximately a quarter acre in size.

The third fire, also a quarter acre in size, was located about 50 yards to the West on Likelike Avenue.

The fires were quickly contained and extinguished. No damages or injuries were reported and no homes were threatened.

Fire cause has not been determined, but officials say the fires may have been intentionally set.
