Oprah Winfrey Opens a Private Road So Maui Residents Can Evacuate from Brush Fire

Talk about good neighbors: Oprah Winfrey is drawing kudos and thanks from Hawaiians for opening up a private road so Maui residents could evacuate from a nasty brush fire. The mogul’s benevolence came to light after a resident tweeted her and requested she make the path accessible. “Access to road was given to county officials immediately,” Winfrey tweeted in response. “This was many hours ago, Hoping for the safety of all.” Her good deed even caught the eye of Hawaii Governor David Ige, who tweeted, “A big mahalo to @Oprah for giving @mauicounty access to your private road for use to assist in the #Mauifire.”
