Vehicle fire shuts down I-10 EB

A truck fire snarled traffic around mid-morning on I-10 eastbound just before I-310.

FOX 8 viewer Marchella Foret sent video of the truck on fire as traffic started to backed up.

The fire shut down all eastbound traffic for a time and cars stretched for a much as five miles.

One lane reopened around 10:15am.

The right lane was still blocked. Drivers are being warned to expect heavy delays between Laplace and Kenner.
