PORT ALLEN - I-10 West is now open after crews worked to clear debris from a large vehicle fire further down I-10 West toward Lafayette.

An 18-wheeler hauling cars caught fire early Friday morning, closing I-10 W on the Basin Bridge. State police later closed I-10 closer to Baton Rouge, diverting drivers from I-10 to US 190 at LA 415 in West Baton Rouge.

Early Friday morning, crews were using a crane to remove the burned 18-wheeler and the vehicles that are attached to it.
