Trash Truck Catches Fire After Blowout In Shreveport

A tire blowout caused a trash truck to catch fire Friday morning as it drove over Cross Lake.
It happened in the westbound lane of I-220 on the Cross Lake Bridge around 9 am. The driver of the Waste Management Truck was able to pull over and get out without injury.
No other cars were involved, but the incident did slow traffic for a while.
The roadway has since been cleared.
