Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Shreveport police and Caddo Parish deputies are at the scene of a spill on Bert Kouns Industrial Loop.

The spill stretches for about a mile to West 70th Street.

It happened around 8:45 a.m. in the 6900 block of Bert Kouns. The northbound right lane of Bert Kouns is being blocked off until a sand truck arrives to cover the fluid.

Authorities believe an 18-wheeler was carrying barrels of hydraulic fluid and one may have fallen over in the truck causing fluid to leak onto the road without the driver knowing.
