Hawaii County fire crews have extinguished a brush fire south of the Lokahi Apartments in Kailua-Kona.  Hawaii County Fire Department Battalion Chief Ty Medeiros told reporter Chelsea Jensen that the fire started a little before 2 a.m., Thursday, 07 July 2016.  Because the fire was inaccessible to firefighters, Medeiros said a Hawaii County helicopter was used to do water drops on the fire site.  There were no evacuations, road closures, or structure damages from the blaze.
