(WCAU) A propane tank on a Philadelphia food truck exploded Tuesday afternoon engulfing a busy street in a fireball. A mother and her teenage daughter were severely burned and 10 others were injured.
The La Parrillada Chapina food truck was parked in the city's Feltonville section when around 5:30 p.m. the rear left propane tank ignited, Philadelphia Police said. The force of the blast sent the metal tank flying 50 feet into the backyard of a home as flames shot 200 feet into the air.
Surveillance video showed the intensity of the explosion and how fire engulfed both cars and people along the street.
