Loo paper truck catches fire
Thu, 14 Jun 2012 10:56a.m.
The State Highway Patrol says a tractor-trailer hauling 10 tonnes of toilet paper caught fire on a highway in northwest Ohio, temporarily blocking southbound traffic as rescuers responded to the scene.
Troopers say the Tuesday night fire began when the trailer air lines dislodged and ignited as the vehicle was travelling along Interstate 75, south of Toledo. The blaze then spread around the trailer and its cargo.
The Blade in Toledo reports hundreds of rolls of toilet paper spilled into the roadway. Much of the rest of the load was ruined by fire or doused by firefighters.
No one was hurt.
The highway was reopened after the fire was extinguished and the vehicle was towed.
