The brush fire in Makakilo is still burning on Palehua Ridge on Monday. But, for now, firefighters are calling the blaze near homes and the lower perimeter of the gulch contained.
Fire officials say two 7-year-old brothers playing with a lighter started the flames on Friday afternoon.
No word yet if their parents will be charged for the damage. Meanwhile, the 40 residents who had been evacuated from their homes on Palehua Road were allowed to go back home.
