Food truck explosion injures 12 people

PHILADELPHIA (WFLX) - A food truck explosion that injured 12 people was caught on camera Tuesday in Philadelphia. The blast sent flames 200 feet in the air.

Police say a 42-year-old woman and her 17-year-old daughter were working inside the truck when the propane tank blew. Their burns were significant.  

Ten other were also burned and hit by debris. "I turned around and saw the fire coming toward me," said victim LaToya Page.

Four people remain in the hospital. Authorities are working to find out what the tank exploded.
