Police charged man in connection with Haleiwa brush fire
Scott Mack, 35, charged over weekend
Honolulu police have charged a man in connection with a brush fire that broke out in Haleiwa on Friday.
35-year-old Scott Mack was charged for failure to control widely dangerous means. He was released on $100 bail.
Officials said Mack was burning trash from his yard when it got out of hand. The blaze forced the evacuation of at least a dozen families and burned nearly 10 acres. The fire was extinguished Saturday.
