New Orleans: Tank truck fire, interstate closed

New Orleans police say a tank truck fire has closed Interstate 10 in eastern New Orleans.

Spokesman Frank Robertson III says no injuries have been reported so far. It was not immediately known if any other vehicles were involved.

Robertson says the burning truck is at the Little Woods exit.

Footage from WDSU-TV shows firefighters had all but doused the flames. It also shows what appears to be the shell of a tanker truck on its side across the road.

Westbound traffic is being diverted at the Michoud (MEE-shoo) Boulevard exit and eastbound traffic at the Lake Forest/Chalmette exit.
