PHOENIX — A portion of US 60 between Globe and Show Low that was closed over the weekend due to a wildfire reopened Monday afternoon, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The 60-mile stretch was shut down in both directions at 4:30 p.m. Friday and remained closed until just after 3:30 p.m. Monday due to the Copper Canyon Fire, which caused damage to guardrails along the highway.

As of Sunday evening, the wildfire was 35% contained and had burned 2,652 acres of grass and brush, according to InciWeb.

The fire started Friday around 12:30 p.m. three miles northeast of Globe and has determined to be human-caused, with an investigation into an ignition source pending.
