BATON ROUGE - Officials have reopened all lanes traveling east and westbound on Interstate 10.

An accident on I-10 East at Essen shut down the interstate in both directions Wednesday.

Officials reopened I-10 West around 6 a.m. today. I-10 East reopened just before 7 a.m.

Crews removed the wrecked tanker truck early Wednesday morning, after conducting a controlled burn operation last night to remove spilled iso-butane from the roadway.

Dozens of residents received visits from police last night, urging them to vacate their homes prior to the controlled burn.

Officials have since lifted the evacuation and shelter in place for the area.
