Hualalai Road in Kailua-Kona was temporarily closed on Friday while Big Island fire crews battled a brush fire that scorched about 8 acres.
The road was reopened at around 4 p.m.
Fire crews were called to the scene just after 11:45 a.m.

By 2:35 p.m. the fire was 60 percent contained and a fire line was made. Fire crews spent the night working on hot spots and mop up operations continued on Saturday.
