A brush fire that broke out in Kahului on Sunday was 100 percent contained early Monday morning, fire officials said.
The blaze burned just over 100 acres and forced the closure of Hansen and Pūlehu Roads for several hours.
Fire crews continued their efforts to extinguish hot spots and flareups early Monday.
No notable damages have been reported and all roads have since been reopened.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
