traffic backed up after a truck hauling a flatbed trailer causes people there, the authorities, to close down northbound lanes of the freeway, and that's the side that everyone wanted to be on to get out of town and go up to flagstaff or places up north. tonight the road is back open, but we are told that the traffic is still slow going in that direction. traffic backups never fun, especially when it's a holiday weekend. labor day weekend, even more people out on the roads than usual, and the road was shut down for at least an the flames that jumped from the truck to a nearby -- some nearby brush along the side of the road there, and it quickly spread, and we are also told tonight that the beeline highway has been closed for sometime in the northbound lanes. 17 miles south of payson, so if you were trying to head up north towards payson way, it was slow going or no moving for a while. now, luckily this fire on i-17 did not spread too far, but the truck, as you see there, was
