Big Island brush fire

I was unaware that the big island of Hawaii was seeing conditions conducive to brush fires, but there's apparently a big one going on over there. When I hear "fire" and Hawaii in the same breath, I tend to think "volcano" but there's no suggestion in the story that lava had anything to do with it. The part about this that we mainlanders tend to forget is that there's only so much room on an island to back up away from a fire with. Here's hoping they get it under control soon.
