HEBER, Ariz. -- The Arizona Department of Transportation has reopened a 45-mile stretch of State Route 260 after a fuel tanker crash forced its closure on Thursday.

The highway was closed in both directions due to the crash approximately 10 miles west of Heber. The closure extended from milepost 257 near Star Valley to milepost 302 in Heber.

The tanker went off the road and rolled over. It spilled about 7,700 gallons of diesel fuel.

No one was seriously injured in this crash.
