UPDATE: I-10 West is closed at LA-415 while crews remove

HENDERSON - Authorities closed I-10 West at La-415 while crews remove a tractor trailer that caught fire on the Atchafalaya Basin.

The fires sparked inside the 18-wheeler's cab.

The fire shut down one lane of the interstate between exits 127 and 135, seven miles east of Henderson.

Traffic is being diverted from I-10 West at La-415 to La-415 North and then to US 190 West.

Authorities said there were no injuries, and the fire wasn't caused by a wreck.
