Extra Time: Catastrophic wildfires ravage across parts of Hawaii

NEW YORK (WABC) — In this edition of ‘Eyewitness News Extra Time,’ we begin with devastating news out of Hawaii, where at least a half dozen people are dead after wildfires tore through one of the most popular tourist areas on Wednesday.

The scene has been apocalyptic, as thick smoke cloaked over parts of the affected area.

Now officials are warning many to postpone all non-essential travel to the island.

Returning from the island, at the moment, isn’t easy.

Nearly 2,000 people are stuck at the airport there because of a flurry of canceled flights.

Here are the other major headlines from Wednesday’s show:
