Update: LA 1 near Plaquemine is now open after a tanker overturned and caught fire Monday afternoon.  It happened near the intersection of LA 1 and St. Louis Road.

State Police say the tanker was hauling natural gas.  The cab caught fire after the crash but troopers say none of the gas has leaked and there are no evacuations.

Students at a nearby school walked to LA 405 to catch their buses as a precaution, according to the Iberville Office of Emergency Preparedness.

No one was hurt in the crash. Iberville Parish is investigating, but a cause has not yet been released.
