But the firefight is still on in Pahala, as crews battle the flames along Highway 11, which means the main road through Pahala is shut down.
"Some of the fire did jump over to the mountain side of the highway. Crews worked on that area Tuesday night to prevent the fire from spreading up the mountain," said Honda.
Emergency crews have fought the fire in challenging mountainous terrain and windy conditions. The winds dropped off on Tuesday, which has slowed the spread of the flames.
Crews now hope for some rain which would also help. But Honda said because of the size of the fire, the fight is expected to take up much of the week.
