CORDES JUNCTION, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona transportation officials are warning travelers of a major backup on Interstate 17 north of Phoenix.
Officials say a vehicle fire has forced the closure of the northbound lanes near Cordes Junction. That has resulted in a backup that stretches for about six miles.
Department of Transportation spokesman Garin Groff says there's no estimated time for when the northbound lanes will reopen.
