NEW RIVER, AZ - A rollover accident involving a semi truck reportedly sparked a brush fire along Interstate 17 in New River on Monday.
Phil Dyer with the Daisy Mountain Fire Department said the fire, which burned about a quarter of an acre, was quickly extinguished.
The driver of the truck was not injured and reportedly refused treatment.
Northbound I-17 was closed until after 4 p.m. as crews cleaned up 40,000 pounds of copper castings from the roadway, Dyer said.
