Interstate 10 is reopen between I-49 and LA 415.

Officials say an 18-wheeler was leaking a poisonous gas because of a loose valve. The truck was transporting Silicon Tetrafluoride, which is an inhalation hazard.

Emergency and cleanup crews are at the scene. No homes were evacuated.

News 2 will have more information when it's available.
