Hawaiin Native Jason Momoa has spoken out about the fires currently taking place in Hawaii. He said on Instagram, “We are devastated and heartbroken for our friends and ‘ohana on Maui who been impacted by the recent wildfires.”  He also shared information about how the fire started and gave fans resources in case they wanted to donate.

Richard Bissen Jr., the island’s mayor, announced the death toll in a Wednesday news conference, but did not offer further details about the deaths and said authorities are still conducting search and rescue operations. So far, more than a dozen people had to be rescued from the ocean, among them two young children, Maui County officials said.

Several people have died since the fires began, and hundreds of structures have been damaged.
