Maui Fire Department says Lāhainā fire 100% contained
The Maui Fire Department said Sunday the Aug. 8 Lāhainā fire, which is the deadliest wildfire in United States history with a total of 115 victims, is officially 100% contained.
According to a release, the upcountry fires are still going, with the Olinda fire 90% contained and the Kula fire 95% contained.
The Olinda fire is estimated around 1,081 acres, and the Kula fire around 202 acres. The total estimated amount of acres for the Lāhainā fire is 2,170.
The Maui Fire Department said extinguishing the upcountry fires may take an extended period of time given the large burn area and the nature of the rural terrain. Although containment percentages have not changed over recent days, MFD said there are no active threats among the three ongoing fires.
