A fire at a trucking company off Coteau Road burned dramatically on Tuesday afternoon.

The smoke from the fire was visible for miles, especially to motorists on U.S. 90.

KATC's Tre Francis could see the smoke 10 miles from the scene.

The fire happened at 2 p.m. on March 29, at a trucking company where oil field flotation devices were burning.

Officials say the blaze was caused by a grass fire burning nearby.
