The truck then crossed over the median, went through a fence, and crashed into a nearby house before bursting into flames.

The truck was not carrying hazardous material but it was carrying fuel, according to Lt. Higgins.

St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s deputies, local firefighters, and paramedics are on scene.

KLFY News 10 is sending a crew en route to the scene and will bring you more information as it becomes available.
