Earlier this morning I-10 West was closed at mile marker 119 due to a vehicle fire.

An 18-wheeler hauling cars caught fire and the wild scene was caught on video by Facebook user Scott LaGrange.

DOTD reported backups and traffic was rerouted to LA 415 North to US 190 West at the Lobdell exit. The blaze was eventually extinguished but authorities have been working all morning to get lanes open and have traffic flowing regularly again once the scene is cleared.
