PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A garbage truck fire briefly closed westbound Interstate 10 for the early Wednesday morning commuters in Phoenix.
The fire broke out just before 4:30 a.m. near I-10 past 32nd Street.
Video from the Arizona Department of Transportation showed the garbage truck fully engulfed in flames and the blaze was quickly spreading to nearby lanes.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety quickly stopped all incoming westbound traffic and traffic was being diverted onto northbound State Route 143. The westbound ramp from SR-143 to westbound I-10 was also closed.
They partially reopened the westbound lanes around 5 a.m. but heavy backup remains as the scene is cleaned up.
The eastbound lanes were unaffected.
DPS said no injuries were reported.
