A bit of help from Mother Nature aided Oahu firefighters with extinguishing a 500-acre brush fire at Yokohama Bay.
According to fire officials, the fire was 80 percent contained before operations were temporarily suspended Saturday night.
When they returned Sunday morning the fire was "wrapped up" and did not require any additional firefighting presence.
Investigators say the brush fire broke out around 3:30 a.m. Saturday near the restrooms at Keawaula Beach and quickly spread up the ridge.
Campers were evacuated and the beach park remained closed overnight.
The fire department says the blaze burned near the Kaena Point Satellite Tracking Station, but it did not come close enough to damage the facility's property or disrupt operations.
It did burn several utility poles that carry Hawaiian Electric Company power lines, but service was not interrupted.
The Honolulu Fire Department was working on a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Association aimed at recovering some of the costs associated with what's been a busy brush fire season on Oahu.
Already this summer, more than 1,500 acres have gone up in flames on the leeward coast of Oahu because of brush fires.
