PHOENIX (AP) - Transportation officials say a freeway in downtown Phoenix has reopened after a semi-truck caught fire forced a shutdown.
The Arizona Department of Transportation says the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 were closed for several hours Saturday due to the fire.
The incident happened shortly before 5 a.m. near where I-10, State Route 51 and Loop 202 intercept.
The spot is also known as the Mini-Stack interchange and is just east of downtown.
ADOT had advised drivers to skirt around the closure by taking I-17 southbound south of downtown.
The westbound lanes of I-10 were not affected.
