Semi Loaded With Toilet Paper Catches Fire On I-20
It's definitely not an April Fool's joke. A semi tractor-trailer carrying a load of toilet paper caught fire in North Texas on Wednesday morning.
It happened around 4:00 a.m. According to KTVT, the big rig hit a bump in the highway, lost control, crashed and burst into flames. The crash sent boxes and rolls of toilet paper across Interstate 20 near the I-45 exchange in Dallas County.
Thousands of rolls of toilet paper were lost as crews continued to battle the flames - the fire even forcing the closure of the entire interstate.
The truck driver and his dog were able to get out of the rig safely and no firefighters were injured.
The interstate is expected to be closed for an extended period of time as firefighters put out hot spots and clean up the mess left behind.
