A new oil spill is causing trouble in Louisiana.

This time, a recently drilled exploratory oil well in Assumption Parish blew out early Wednesday morning, forcing the closure of state highway 70.

The blowout sent a combination of light oil and natural gas spewing some 200 feet into the air.

The well is owned by Mantle Oil of Friendswood, Texas.

Authorities believe it will take a few days to cap.
