PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A propane tank on a food truck exploded in Philadelphia Tuesday, sending a huge fireball into the sky and injuring at least 11 people, including two who suffered serious burns, police said.

The explosion outside an auto body shop in the city's Feltonville neighborhood caused serious burns to a 27-year-old woman and teenage girl, said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small. He said that four others were listed in stable condition at area hospitals and at least five others were treated and released.

Small said that the two critically injured victims suffered serious burns across a substantial portion of their bodies.

Surveillance video from two businesses near the La Parrillada Chapina food truck captured the explosion, followed by a huge fireball that engulfed the truck and crossed to the other side of the street, Small said.
