Truck fire closes I-10 & I-55

A truck fire led to the closure of I-10 eastbound this afternoon, and also led to I-55 southbound traffic being diverted to Airline Highway.

A DOTD traffic camera showed a large truck fully engulfed in flames belching out black smoke just at about 1:15 p.m.

State police diverted traffic on I-10 eastbound coming in from LaPlace at the Highway 51 exit, sending traffic to Airline. 

The cleanup continues, and police have not yet released any information about the condition of the truck driver.
