Propane gas leak leads to food truck explosions in San Marcos

A propane gas leak led to the explosion of a food truck and a second propane tank in San Marcos, says the City. 

Two explosions happened suddenly on Chestnut Street at a food trailer park on Thursday morning.

"Our units arrived on scene at 6:11 and began to engage in a small fire that was remaining from the first food truck that exploded when at 6:20 a second explosion occurred," San Marcos Fire Chief Les Stephens said Thursday.

According to investigators, a propane gas leak in the Rondooley’s Inc. food trailer came in contact with an unspecified ignition source, causing the first explosion.

The second explosion was caused by a separate propane bottle that overheated.

Video captured the moment one of the explosions sounded off. 

The city says no criminal act is suspected in this incident.
