SAFFORD, Ariz. (AP) — The highway up Mount Graham near Safford in southeastern Arizona will remain closed until further notice because of safety concerns stemming from flash flooding related to a recent wildfire.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says it's not known when State Route 66 will reopen.
