In addition to the 270 acres that burned earlier in the week, the Kīlauea volcano in Hawaii ignited fires in two more areas on Thursday that burned about 350 acres by the end of the day. The fires were west of Highway 130, 0.6 to 0.9 mile from the Ainaloa subdivision.
Two dozers were at the scene improving fire breaks along with two helicopters dropping water.
Hawaii County Assistant Fire Chief Gantry Andrade said the fires would likely be under control by Friday.
A web cam operated by the Hawaii Volcano Observatory at the Pāhoa Marketplace occasionally grabs images of smoke from the lava-ignited fires.
