Crews respond to construction site fire in Tempe

Heavy smoke was seen along the Loop 202 Red Mountain in Tempe from a building fire just south of the freeway on Wednesday.

The construction site is located near Arizona State University.

According to the Scottsdale Fire Department, initial reports say the fire was caused by roofing material. Crews worked to keep the fire to the original structure and there are no reported injuries.

While firefighters were at the scene, the eastbound Scottsdale off-ramp was closed and traffic on the westbound off-ramp could only go northbound. Southbound Scottsdale Road at the Loop 202 and northbound Scottsdale Road at Rio Salado Parkway were also closed. Alternative routes included McClintock Drive and Priest Drive for north and southbound traffic.
