2007_11_avistruck.jpgAn Avis truck exploded at 64th Road and 108th Street in Queens, injuring one person and damaging windows in surrounding buildings. The box truck was parked behind some businesses and blew up around 8AM.

At first, residents were concerned it might be some sort of attack, but it seems that a propane gas-barbecue inside the truck ignited, causing the explosion. And authorities say the vehicle was a catering truck. WCBS 2 has video of the scene, which brought a big FDNY and NYPD response.

According to the National Propane Gas Association, you shouldn't leave propane tanks in vehicles.
