KENNER, LA (WVUE) - A two-car fire brought the west-bound lanes of I-10 on the Bonne Carre Spillway to a stand still this afternoon.

Around 12:33 p.m. traffic came to a stop and one driver rear-ended another near mile marker 214. According to State Police, one of the cars caught fire and the flames quickly spread to the other car.

It took EMS about 45 minutes to get to the scene due to the dense, stopped traffic according to State Police.

The fires have since been put out and all lanes are open. Police said that there were no injuries.
