“Apocalyptic Scene”: Out-Of-Control Wildfire Spreads On Hawaii’s Maui Island

Shocking footage of an out-of-control wildfire burning in Hawaii has been shared on Twitter, showing the devastation. 

The epicenter of the destruction is in the Hawaiian town of Lahaina on the island of Maui. CBS News said, “People were jumping into the water to escape flames and smoke from a wind-fueled wildfire.”
