The fires were located along the westbound outside shoulder I-20 on either side of Airline Drive. Firefighters were called to the scene at approximately 1:15pm.

Bossier City police assisted by shutting down the outside westbound lane of traffic in the area while fire crews worked to put out the fires. All of the fires were extinguished and normal traffic flow had resumed by 1:45pm.

The exact cause of the fires, which were compounded by the dry conditions, remains unknown.
