We are getting reports of a major accident on I-10 West Bound near Scott.

An eyewitness tells me that he heard a "loud explosion" and then saw flames topping the trees along his property, which runs parallel to I-10. We can report that the fire is out, but crews are working to cleanup the scene.

As a result, I-10 West is closed at the Ambassador Caffery Exit.

We are following this developing story out of Lafayette Parish.
