TEMPE, Ariz. -- Two vehicle fires impacted westbound traffic on Valley freeways Sunday.

According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, a Jeep was towing a camping trailer on the US 60 near Mill Avenue when it caught fire. It is unclear what caused the fire.

The westbound lanes were shut down, and firefighters quickly extinguished the flames.

A vehicle also caught fire on Interstate 10 near 43rd Avenue, blocking the westbound HOV and left lanes.

Both freeways have reopened.
