Two People Burned in Food Truck Explosion
Injured in Monday's Frites 'n' Meats Fire

A propane tank exploded in Frites 'n' Meats' food truck on Monday, causing a massive fire that burned two workers and shutdown a large stretch of the West Side Highway.

The popular hamburger truck was stationed on West St. serving lunch when the propane tank exploded, rippling a bomb-like sound throughout Tribeca. The owner of the truck and an employee were rushed to the hospital where they're being treated for serious, but fortunately nonlife-threatening burns.
