Lahaina, Pulehu and Upcountry Maui Fires Update as Death Toll Rises to 93

Hahaina, HI….Firefighting crews are continuing to extinguish flare-ups in the Lahaina and Upcountry Maui fires. In the Upcountry Maui fire, three structures in Olinda and 16 structures in Kula were destroyed. The Pulehu/Kīhei fire was declared 100 percent contained Saturday. Containment indicates what percentage of the fire perimeter has been enclosed by a control line and reflects opportunities for the fire to spread beyond its original border into new areas.

The number of confirmed fatalities increased to 93, with two of them identified.
