BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - St. George Fire department and Baton Rouge Fire Department Haz-mat are on the scene of an overturned 18-wheeler on Airline Highway across from Sherwood Commons.

The truck was carrying glycerin, a non-toxic liquid widely used in pharmaceuticals and skin care products when it overturned into the ditch on the side of the eastbound lanes.

Fire officials say there was no leakage and no danger of fire or threat to the public.

Workers are offloading the materials.
