A fiery crash involving a car and an 18-wheeler led to a shutdown of Interstate 10 in southeast Louisiana on Friday afternoon.

State police social media posts said all lanes were closed at the Gramercy exit between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

There were no immediate reports of injuries. But The Advocate of Baton Rouge reported that the passenger car was engulfed in flames after the collision with a tanker.
