LAKE CHARLES - State Police said a truck carrying drums of oil caught fire this afternoon on I-10 East near the Texas state line.

Troopers said no one was hurt in the wreck or fire, which happened around 4 p.m between the exits to LA 108 and LA 1256 west of Lake Charles.

State Police said the fire is out, but dozens of 55-gallon oil drums will have to be transferred to another truck. They expect the process to take about 6 hours.

The work will close the outside lane eastbound in that area.
