Holy shit, that was one helluva explosion! I can't believe how hot it got, even with such short-lived flames!

I sure hope those two burned women make it. *prayers*

Holy shit!

Looks like propane explosion + large volume of cooking oil = napalm!

Making a note of it now, V-POTUS.

Our journey to the White House just got a lot shorter.

Propane Tank Likely Cause of Food Truck Explosion

July 02, 2014

FELTONVILLE (WPVI) -- Police say a leaking propane tank is likely to blame for an explosion inside a food truck that injured 13 including five people critically.

The explosion happened inside the La Parrillada Chapina truck around 5:40 p.m. Tuesday. The truck was parked outside an auto body shop in the 300 block of West Wyoming Avenue in Feltonville.

According to police, a SEPTA police officer on duty nearby responded immediately to find multiple victims in the street.

At least one of those victims was on fire, police said.

Philadelphia police and firefighters arrived, transporting a total of 13 people to the hospital including five people in critical condition.

Action News has learned that two of the people in critical condition are the truck owner, 42 year old Olga Galdemez, and her daughter, 17 year old Jaylin Landaverry, (photo below).

Police said Galdemez and Landaverry suffered serious burns across a substantial portion of their bodies.

Two others in critical condition are relatives of Galdamez, a 13 year old girl and a 27 year old woman.

The fifth critical victim was a 23 year old male passerby.

Galdemez had just recently purchased the food truck to replace a much older and smaller one.

City records show the truck was properly licensed by both the health department and L&I.

Investigators say the truck was equipped with two 100 pound propane tanks but only one of them was being used at the time.

The unused tank apparently started leaking, enveloping the truck in a cloud of propane.

Investigators say the gas was likely ignited by a stove burner.

The blast sent a fireball through the neighborhood and hurtled the propane tank into a back yard 95 feet away.

Agents from ATF and OSHA were on the scene Wednesday along with the city fire marshal.

Investigators say it may be days or weeks before they know exactly what caused the leak.

IF they survive the massive bodily burns their life is pretty much over imo.
