East and West Bound Lanes of Highway 90 Closed at Albertson Parkway


Broussard, La. – Shortly before noon, Broussard Fire Department was dispatched to a business in the 5400 block of U.S. Highway 90 for a report of a commercial fire. Upon arrival, Broussard units observed smoke emitting from a chemical tote containing corrosive material on the property of a business. The initial fire had been extinguished by occupants onsite prior to arrival of the Broussard Fire Department.

Lafayette Fire Department Hazardous Material Team was requested to assist. While on scene, a second tote on the property containing the same material began emitting smoke and caught fire. All fire has been extinguished at this time. Haz-Mat crews are working to stabilize the corrosive materials involved in the incident.

U.S. 90 has been shut down in both directions — eastbound at Hwy. 182 and westbound at Ambassador Caffery Parkway — and will remain shut down until hazards are no longer present. Estimated time of shut down is approximately three hours.
