Over 100 Acres Burn At Maha’ulepu

Over 100 acres caught fire on Sunday at Maha‘ulepu Beach at 10:36 a.m.  Fire trucks from six of the seven fire stations on island responded along with heavy equipment operators from private companies and a helicopter crew form Pacific Missle Range Facility at PMRF dropped 12 buckets on the fire.

Most of the responding agencies had left the scene by 7 p.m., but at press time a small crew of firefighters remained there to handle mop-up operations and put out hot spots.

The National Association of Realtors wants to extend the $8,000 first-time homebuyer credit which will expire November 30.  “Now is the time for Congress to keep this recovery going by extending the tax credit through 2010 and making it available to more homebuyers, says NAR president Charles McMillan. The first-time buyer credit, which was implemented earlier this year, has brought 1.2 million new buyers into the market, the NAR estimates. It says 350,000 of those buyers would not have purchased a home without the credit.
