Questions we keep asking but nobody in any public safety office...or building codes wants to answer so we will once again put them on notice:

All Utility Trailers are built to a "Voluntary Standard"  They are all Self Certified.

A Utility Trailer Was never designed to be used as a mobile food kitchen.....

Who designed this trailer?

What insurance company approved this?

Who installed the Propane lines?

Who installed the Propane tanks?

The Propane regulators were never designed to be used as a mobile application.

What workman's comp does this restaurant owner have?

Who is paying for the medical bills?

Why did nobody ever inspect the the unapproved kitchen in this trailer?

Can you open a restaurant in any place and not get inspected?

An investigation is underway to determine what caused a propane tank on a food truck in north Philadelphia to explode into a fireball, critically injuring a mother and daughter and sending at least nine others to the hospital, police said.

The truck, which exploded Tuesday evening outside an auto body shop in the city's Feltonville neighborhood, was towed away Wednesday for examination by investigators.


The city's fire department, along with police detectives and the bomb squad were investigating.

"We want to ensure that this was an accidental explosion. We want to ensure this wasn't anything criminal," Small said. "The bomb squad is investigating to see if there is any foul play. That will be the result of a completed investigation."

Jane Kim, the owner of a store next to the auto body shop, said that the food truck is parked outside daily. She said that she heard the explosion and was shaken by the incident.

"We thought something fell over. Then all of a sudden we heard screams," neighbor Nicole Ellis told WCAU-TV. "We walked outside and the truck was billowing fire."

Neighbor Luis Rivera told The Philadelphia Inquirer that his home across the street shook from the blast.

"I thought it was a car accident — there are usually a lot on this street," he said. "Then I came outside and saw the lunch truck in flames."

The business said anyone wanting to drop off a card for the injured employees can leave it at the cafe, which is located at 2631 W. Cary St. in the Fan District.

"Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers," the cafe said in its Facebook message.

A woman who picked up the phone at the Cary Street Cafe on Sunday night said the restaurant's owner was one of the three people injured. All three are healing and are expected to eventually be released from the hospital, said the woman, who would not identify herself.
