Traffic on I-10 East came to a stop yesterday as an 18-wheeler caught fire, and the cab exploded near the I-110 merge at the Nicholson exit.

As you'll see in the video below, the cab of the semi becomes engulfed in flames in what was a pretty serious situation.

I didn't see any information on whether or not any injuries were reported, so hopefully everyone is OK.
