A vehicle fire forced the closure of westbound Interstate 10 between Casa Grande and Phoenix, resulting in a reported 5-mile-long traffic backup Saturday morning.
Traffic was being diverted at milepost 175 onto State Route 587, which allowed drivers to continue into the Phoenix area. Motorists were allowed to return to I-10 at Riggs Road, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
The interstate was reopened about 10:45 a.m., and backups reportedly reached up to 8 miles, according to ADOT. Eastbound traffic was not affected.
