Food Truck Fire Safety

Food Truck Fire System

Like any foodservice establishment, food trucks brim with potential fire hazards that can cause a fire to quickly spiral out of control: open flames, hot equipment, propane tanks, gas generators, electrical connections, cooking oils, splattered grease, cleaning chemicals, paper products, gasoline or diesel fuel, and engine oil.

But unlike brick-and-mortar restaurants, customers at the counter stand uncomfortably close to fire hazards in the kitchen, making it even more important for food truck operators to take extra precautions.

Propane poses the most significant risk of fire in a food truck. NFPA asserts that 68 percent of food truck fires are related to leaks or structural failures in propane tanks.

Propane explosions were behind almost every food truck fire involving injuries and deaths in recent years.

The 2018 edition of NFPA 1 ( emphasizes that food trucks are not exempt from being “protected by an approved hood fire suppression system or other approved means of extinguishment in the event of fire.”

Most food truck operators carry portable fire extinguishers, but many don’t realize that they need two types to effectively extinguish the types of fires they are likely to face: a Class K extinguisher for suppressing grease, fat, or cooking oil fires and an ABC extinguisher for putting out fires involving paper products or other types of fires.
