BLACK CANYON CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a brush fire burning in the median of Interstate 17 near Sunset Point Rest Area north of Black Canyon City is causing serious delays for southbound traffic late Saturday afternoon.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says there’s a seven-mile (11-kilometer) backup from Bumble Bee Road to Badger Springs Road.

I-17 is the main route between Phoenix and Flagstaff.
