The Honolulu Fire Department says the wildfire in Nānākuli that started on Sunday is a hundred percent contained. The blaze originated from behind the Sack-and-Save, and burned a total of 500 acres. But the fire department wants residents to start now to help prevent wildfires near their homes by making a plan.
The Honolulu Fire Department recently released internal audio communication tapes that document how firefighters approached the deadly seven-alarm fire last summer. An HFD Captain, who was on the scene, helps us interpret the tapes and explains the challenges crews faced.
