Brush Fire North Of Phoenix Closes 11 Miles Of Interstate 17
A brush fire north of Phoenix has burned more than 50 acres — and closed parts of three highways, including 11 miles of Interstate 17.
A spokesman for the Arizona Department of Transportation says Interstate 17 southbound is closed at Pioneer Road, just north of State Route 74, the Carefree Highway. I-17 northbound is closed at Loop 101. Loop 303 westbound is closed from I-17 to Lake Pleasant Parkway. And the Carefree Highway Eastbound is closed at Lake Pleasant Parkway.
There is no estimate of when these roads will reopen.
