There was a 25 acre brushfire on Sunday night in Happy Valley - a little enclave just next to Wailuku. The blaze was believed to be caused by fireworks. I cruised up there today to see what I could and noticed that life has pretty much gone back to normal; however, the infrastructure of the firefighting was still setup from the weekend. After looking at the photos, I can't believe how close the fire came to engulfing homes.
What was interesting to observe was the fact that there was hardly anyone around. Almost like a post-apocalyptic scene, trucks, beds, and food were present, just not the people!
Homes were spared
