Several fire departments suppressed a fire, or possibly multiple fires, along Highway 83 approximately 60 air miles southeast of Tucson Wednesday.
The highway was completely closed for a while; later one lane was opened before the highway fully reopened after 10 p.m.
The fire reportedly burned about 146 acres.
