Heavy smoke covering State Route 87 prompted fire officials to close the highway south of Payson Tuesday night.
It is now reopened, but fire officials warn it could close at any time.
According to the toll free ADOT traffic line, State Route 87 was closed from one mile south of State Route 188 to one mile north of Rye.
For ADOT traffic information, call 1-888-411-7623. (This is a voice recognition phone system. You must clearly say "State Route 87, section 2.")
