The Sunset Fire near Cordes Junction was first reported at 2:30 p.m. and was about 25 acres in size.

The fire started in the median on I-17 and is believed to be human-caused. The fire jumped to the west side of the interstate, according to Pamela Mathis with the Bureau of Land Management.

All lanes of traffic have reopened after the fire briefly closed both directions of the highway.
