The Austin Fire Department spent part of its Monday afternoon fighting a brush fire on South Mopac.

AFD said the fire began just after 3 PM in a median between Mopac and the feeder road, just north of Loop 360.

Crews contained the fire just after 4 PM. The roadway was shut down, causing traffic to back up for quite some time.
