A reader reports:

“I was by the food trucks at GW (22 and H) and there was a loud boom – I think a fuel tank exploded. The truck caught fire and there were massive flames. The street was filled with people and I hope no one was hurt.”

Another reader reports at 2:05pm:

“Pictures taken from my desk. Lots of sirens. Not sure what is on fire but it’s right in the middle of GW campus.”

DC Fire and EMS reported:

“Food Truck fire -21st and H Streets, NW At least 3 burned patients will be transposed from the scene.”

    Anyone knows which food truck it was? I have lunch there almost everyday and it could be someone I know. I hope everyone is ok.
