A large brush fire continues to burn in Upper Makakilo. Ten fire companies and tankers are protecting 20 homes on Palehua Road and three on Umena Street. The occupants were evacuated Friday. The winds were expected to increase Saturday and Fire Captain David Jenkins says many areas are inaccessible and the fire is moving in multiple directions. The fire helicopter is making water drops and the police helicopter is expected to join the effort.
