The Arizona Department of Public Safety and Northwest Fire District are on the scene dealing with a fire that was caused by the crash, according to a tweet from the Town of Marana.

 

Both directions of travel were previously closed to traffic, but the westbound lanes have since reopened, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

 

One eastbound lane has reopened, and drivers are advised to expect delays in both directions.
