A food truck parked on a street in Philadelphia exploded Tuesday, injuring 12, two of whom are in critical condition.
The La Parrillada Chapina truck burst into flames outside of an auto body shop in the Feltonville neighborhood. The explosion was caught on surveillance video at about 5:30 p.m. at 3rd Street and Wyoming Avenue.
It is not immediately clear what caused the truck to explode though a witness told the Associated Press that firefighters said a propane tank blew.
“It appears, preliminarily, that the cause of this explosion was a propane tank,” Chief Inspector Scott Small of Philadelphia Police said, “This lunch truck actually has two similar propane tanks in the rear of the truck.” Small said, “One of them is still intact. The other one exploded.”
An investigation continues. We wish all involved a speedy recovery.
