Both eastbound lanes of Interstate 10, about 10 miles west of Benson (milepost 296), have reopened, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The highway closed shortly after 2 p.m. because of a tractor-trailer fire.

Traffic is very slow for about 7 miles leading up to the crash area and drivers should expect delays until the backup clears, official stated.
