I-12 closed due to 18-wheeler fire

The westbound lanes of I-12 near the Walker exit are closed due to an accident in which an 18-wheeler caught fire and spilled some type of substance on the roadway.

Officials say the spill could be cleaned up by 6:30 a.m. but it could take longer.

Drivers are urged to take the Livingston Frost exit or Satsuma exit to avoid the crash.
