Portland Fire Causes Propane Canisters to Explode

A food cart exploded and caught fire, destroying two food carts and 10 cars in downtown Portland, Oregon, on October 18, according to reports.

The fire that caused the explosion sparked because food-cart operators were fueling a generator with gasoline, reports said, and the vapor ignited, causing two propane canisters to explode.

No serious injuries were reported, but several people suffered minor injuries. Credit: Grant Engrav via Storyful
