TULSA, Oklahoma -

After a propane tank in a food truck exploded in Philadelphia on Tuesday and injured a dozen people, safety is on the minds of many.

At Guthrie Green in downtown Tulsa, food trucks gather to feed the masses several days a week.

Tulsa food truck operators say they take precautions to make sure what happened in Philadelphia doesn't happen here.

The truck in Philadelphia was parked outside an auto body shop in Philadelphia when it exploded.

A mother and daughter were working inside the truck at the time, and both were critically burned. Ten others had to be hospitalized.

Surveillance video captured the explosion, and in it, you can see the huge fireball engulfing the truck and crossing to the other side of the street.

Philadelphia authorities haven't said what caused the propane tank to explode.

Some of the Tulsa trucks don't use propane tanks, but one owner whose truck does use propane says the company she rents the tank from makes sure it's safe.

"The people at Victor Welding, where we buy our propane, make sure that our tanks are regulation and not leaking and them come out and service our tanks if we need it," Lola Palazzo, owner of Lola's Caravan, said.

Food truck owners say they their trucks are regularly inspected by the state.

They say the state fire marshal was here last week making sure the all trucks were safe.
