A brush fire has forced the closure of Tramway between Rainbow and Forest Road 333 in both directions.

Authorities say the fire is out but crews are still cleaning up hot spots. The fire consumed approximately two-and-a-half acres along the road.

Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department officials suggest motorists avoid the area. The road is expected to be reopened by 3:00 p.m.

It has not been determined what caused the fire.
