Vehicle fire shuts down I-10 East near Henderson

Interstate 10 East near Henderson east of Lafayette was shut down Saturday evening until a vehicle fire is put out and the wreckage hauled off, State Police said.

A produce truck had a tire blowout, but the driver kept driving and the truck eventually caught fire, State Police spokesman Trooper Stephen Hammons said.

No one was injured in the fire, Hammons said.

State Police advised drivers in a traffic alert to take Interstate 49 north to U.S. 190 as an alternate route.
