WAIPIO, Hawaii -

Fire crews are working on a brush fire near the Central Oahu Regional Park in Waipio Friday afternoon.

A lot of smoke is coming from the area.  So far, there have been no road closures.

Flames have been seen near at least one neighborhood in Waikele.

Fire officials say the brush fire started at around 3:30 p.m.  About 40 to 45 firefighters are working on the blaze.

As the flames get closer to homes, firefighters are putting out the fires.  Since the fire is not near a water supply, six tankers are on the scene to provide water.
