(Newser) – In ordinary times, a fire aboard an 18-wheeler carrying toilet paper probably wouldn't make a ripple on the national news wires.

The good news is that the driver is OK after the overnight accident in Hutchins, reports WFAA. The rolls appeared to be of the large, industrial-sized variety for commercial restrooms.
