Semi Carrying Toilet Paper Catches Fire, Shuts Down Texas Highway

No, this is not an April Fool’s joke. With toilet paper still in high demand, this is the last thing we want to see. But a blaze in the middle of a Texas highway was caused by a bunch of the coveted paper product on fire.

A tractor-trailer carrying toilet paper caught fire overnight in Hutchins, TX. Officials have reported that the driver of the truck is OK. However, the fire did shut down all lanes of westbound Interstate 20.

The toilet paper appeared to be large rolls typical of commercial use and was scattered across the roadway.
