CALCASIEU PARISH — Drivers traveling to and from Beaumont who use the Calcasieu River Bridge near Lake Charles will have to take a detour.

The I-10 bridge remains closed Thursday morning at the I-210 intersection in both directions, following an 18 wheeler fire. Another vehicle crashed into the tractor trailer carrying building materials Wednesday night, sparking a raging fire on the 18 wheeler but causing only minor injuries.

The bridge will remain closed until inspectors can check it out and give it a safety okay. Traffic is re-routed onto I-210.
