BATON ROUGE - An 18-wheeler burst into flames on I-12 early Monday morning, blocking traffic heading out of Baton Rouge for about two hours.

Authorities said no injuries were reported.
The interstate reopened the left and center lanes around 8 a.m., though eastbound delays were still reaching the Mississippi River Bridge.
