Northwest Fire battled two brush fires near Oracle and Rudasill Friday.

No injuries have been reported, but traffic backup resulted.

The blazes started just after 11 a.m. One blaze was behind a hotel on the east side of Oracle and the other was on the west side of Oracle.

The fires were mopped up at about 12:30 p.m.

Pima County Sheriff's deputies responded to the scene but say the fires are not suspicous.

"There will likely be no further investigation, beyond the responding deputies," deputy Ryan Inglett said via email. "It is not being treated as suspicious at this time."
