A food cart exploded and caught fire in downtown Portland, Oregon, on October 18. Two food carts and 10 cars were destroyed, according to reports. The fire that caused the explosion sparked up because food-cart operators were fueling a generator with gasoline, fire officials said, and its vapor was ignited. That in turn caused two propane canisters to explode. Nobody was seriously injured, but several people suffered minor injuries, authorities said. Credit: Katy Brown Troftgruben via Storyful
