What We Know About the Cause of the Maui Wildfires

From a Washington Post story by Adele Suliman, Lyric Li, and Tamia Fowlkes headlined “What we know about the cause of the Maui wildfires”:

Devastating wildfires in Hawaii left at least 36 people dead early Thursday, according to Maui County officials. The individuals, who have not yet been named or identified, perished in the active Lahaina fire in western Maui.

The fires have been raging across three of Hawaii’s islands, trapping local residents and visitors, causing widespread power outages and forcing many to evacuate and seek shelter.
