Maui Mountain Fires

It has been really windy on the island for weeks. On the windiest day we've had in a long time, a fire got out of control. I heard rumours that is was a cane fire that got out of control, but I confirm that. The highway going over to Lahaina was closed for several hours.The entire mountain above the Ma'aleae Harbor was burned. I went our to Sugar Beach after dark and shot a few images of the scene. It was unreal to see these moutains that are usually dark alive with lights and fire. It looked like a city across the entire hill. It wasn't, it was fire.
