PHILADELPHIA (KYW/CNN) - A food truck exploded Tuesday evening, injuring 12 people, including two critically.

Witnesses describe it as a quick, violent blast.

One woman says she has a first-degree burn on the left side of her body.

"I was walking by, and the truck just blew up,” Latoya Page said. “I saw the fire just hit me, and I started running."

Other witnesses saw parts of the truck and a propane tank fly across the street, setting a passing car on fire.

Right now, it seems the blast started with the propane tank.
