One woman was badly burned and 7 others hurt when the propane tank on a food truck exploded in the Feltonville neighborhood of Philadelphia.

“They said a lady had been shot out of the truck from the explosion,” Ellis said. “A girl was walking by from the nail salon and her whole back got sprayed with debris. She was screaming all the way up the street, ‘I’m on fire! I want my mom! I want my mom!’ And then a man sitting on his porch actually got caught with fire as well. It was pretty bad.”
