BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

All lanes of traffic are back open on I20 in Bossier City, after a grass fire in the media between Industrial Drive and I220 caused closures Friday afternoon.

Bossier City spokesman Mark Natale said traffic in both directions was down to one lane until just after 6:30 p.m., because of the number of emergency response vehicles on the scene and the smoke coming from the fire.

The flames were brought under control just before 7 p.m. and lanes reopened shortly after.
