A grass fire on I-10 in Jeff Davis Parish is causing traffic problems on both the east- and westbound sides of the highway.
State police say a tire on an 18-wheeler blew out, sending the truck into the median and creating the grass fire. Troopers say smoke from the fire is limiting visibility in the area.
A local fire department is en route to the scene. No timetable has been set to clear the fire or the smoke.
