MONROE, Wash. (AP) - A brush fire briefly closed U.S. Highway 2 in both directions near Monroe Monday afternoon.

The Washington Department of Transportation says traffic was detoured around the fire while the roadway was blocked for about an hour.

The brush fire is burning just west of State Route 9 and about 25 miles northeast of Seattle.
