I'm feeling great sadness this morning because of the burning of sites on Maui including historic Lahaina. This has great sentimental importance because that's where we spent our honeymoon. Many of the affected people had to run into the ocean to escape the flames. There are other fires burning across the island. Officials have put in a request for the National Guard and are awaiting that assistance. They have not been able to control the flames yet and need much more help.

What a sad situation. I also visited Maui about 25 years ago with my family. So beautiful there!

OMG!!  Haven't heard anything about this on the news.  We have been to Hawaii several times and Maui is our favorite island.  Have plans to take the 7 day NCL cruise in March that stays overnight in Maui.  Hope things are OK by then.

My husband and I visited there...such a beautiful place.  We loved all of the islands we visited.  So very sad.  Hopefully they get it under control very soon.  So devastating.

So very heartbreaking. Lahaina is a national treasure. I pray that the people and animals escape harm.

We visited Lahaina about 10 years ago, love the quaint and historical town, thoughts and prayers for everyone's safety.
