Newsmax's Greg Kelly: “I don't think anybody knows what happened in Maui”

Kelly: “This was a forest fire? I'm sorry, I doesn't look like one to me.”

As the Washington Post has reported, video and data show that one fire on Maui was likely caused by downed power lines during the strong winds as a result of Hurricane Dora. CBS News also reported more in-depth about how climate change impacted the situation.

GREG KELLY (HOST): Everything is crazy right now. For instance, you know what happened in Maui. Actually, I don't think anybody knows what happened in Maui. This was a forest fire? I'm sorry, it doesn't look like one to me. I noticed in the early stages of this disaster, no one was really -- excuse me -- talking about the cause. It was just well, this horrible, horrible fire, But how did it start? Power lines? There are a lot of strange patterns that people are noticing. I don't think we have the full story yet.
