PORT ALLEN - Authorities re-opened I-10 West after a truck cab fire this morning shut down the westbound lanes over the Atchafalaya Basin.

DOTD said all lanes were back open at the Lobdell exit, where traffic had been detoured off the interstate, as well as further down the interstate at the scene of the wreck.

Congestion on I-10W had built up from the Lobdell exit past the Perkins exit in Baton Rouge.

No injuries were reported in the initial incident, when an 18-wheeler's cab caught fire near mile marker 126. State Police said it wasn't the result of the wreck, and were still working to clear and clean the roadway before opening it fully.
