food truck fire

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee Fire officials were on the scene of a fire involving a food truck that occurred near S. 16th Street and Washington Street in Milwaukee.

A deputy fire chief with MFD tells FOX6 News a battalion chief was on the scene of a fatal crash near Cesar Chavez Drive and Mineral Street was leaving the scene when he noticed smoke.

The chief followed the smoke — and discovered the food truck on fire.

The food truck that caught fire apparently contained propane tanks — but firefighters were able to knock down and put out the fire before it reached those tanks.

No injured were reported as a result of this fire.

A damage estimate is not yet available.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
