BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announced that Interstate 20 west is reopened again after a fiery wreck early Tuesday morning.

Drivers are asked to use caution due to congestion.

The fire was located just west of the Airline Drive exit.

Police say the driver left the roadway, hit a guardrail, and then struck the opposite concrete guardrail on the overpass before coming to a rest.

The driver was able to get out of the truck safely.

The DOTD traffic camera on I-20 at Airline Drive can see multiple first responders as they arrived on the scene.

Police say the roadway will be closed until further notice.
