All lanes of eastbound Interstate 10 are now open, after the right two lanes between the Ruthrauff Road and Prince Road exits were closed for several hours.

The eastbound frontage road was also closed.

The delay was caused by a semi-truck that caught fire. The cause is currently unknown.

The incident occurred at about 4:15 a.m., according to the Arizona Department of Transportation website.
