The cause of the Maui Fires remains to be investigated. Our initial investigation suggests that equipment owned by Hawaiian Electric may have caused the fire.

Residents reported power lines down in the area where the fires started. The line faults of dozens were discovered in the days before the fires, and fallen lines were found to be energized as they fell to the ground. Although Hawaiian Electric was aware of the dangers of fire conditions, it made a decision that resulted in the most fatal fire in recent American history.

The Maui Fires started in early August 2023 and were a swarm of wildfires that raged across Maui’s island. Maui.

Investigations into the Reasons for the Maui Fires Continue

While officials, residents, and emergency response teams continue to fight the wildfires and begin cleanup efforts, many people are wondering why the Maui fires started.

In mid-August, authorities haven’t issued any official confirmation as to who is to blame. However, there are things we do know. For instance, the National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for Maui and the rest of Hawaii, which means dry conditions, paired with low humidity and strong winds, could create dangerous conditions for wildfires.

In addition to environmental aspects, investigators are investigating the possibility that Hawaiian Electric, which owns and manages Maui Electric and services 95 percent of the state, could not implement preventative safety measures to lower the risk of wildfires before the onset of fires. The alleged shortcomings are:

  • No Power Shutoffs. According to the Washington Post, Hawaiian Electric is under scrutiny for not implementing a “public power shutoff plan,” which entails deliberately cutting off power in areas where muscular wind incidents could ignite fires even though it was documented that the company knew that power shutoffs could be a successful method.
  • Poor Fire-Prevention Planning. Additionally, there are assertions that Hawaiian Electric failed to implement an emergency plan containing power shutoffs. A few have been critical of Hawaiian Electric for not bolstering its infrastructure that is vulnerable to wildfires by digging up power lines and implementing other preventative steps, particularly in a Hawaii Wildfire Management Organization report that dates back to 2014 and highlighted Lahaina and the rest in West Maui as a highly fire-risk area.
