CNN – A big rig loaded with toilet paper and headed to San Antonio crashed and caught fire on I-20 in southern Dallas County.

It happened around 4 a.m. in the westbound lanes near I-45.

The driver was not hurt, but the truck became engulfed in flames along with thousands of rolls of toilet paper.

All lanes of I-20 westbound are closed while crews work to put out the fire and get the big rig towed away.

The closure could last several hours.
