Man arrested on arson charge for Big Island fire

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A 31-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a Big Island brush fire that's burned 1,300 acres -- or more than 2 square miles.

Big Island police say the unidentified Papaikou man was found near the blaze Sunday, taken to the hospital for treatment and arrested Monday on suspicion of first-degree arson.

The man was released Tuesday as the investigation continues.

The fire started Sunday near Mauna Kea State Park. It was about 60 percent contained on Wednesday.

U.S. Army Garrison Hawaii spokesman Mike Egami says no structures have been threatened and no injuries have been reported.
