An unattended lunchwagon was destroyed in a fire Thursday afternoon at Campbell Industrial Park.
The lunchwagon was fully involved in flames when firefighters arrived. It was parked in a dirt lot on Kuhela Street across from the Hawaii Gas Co. when it was consumed by fire, said fire Capt. Terry Seelig.
No one was injured in the blaze.
The fire started at 1:53 p.m. Firefighters had it under control by 2:04 p.m.
The lunchwagon owner told fire officials that he had closed the lunchwagon up and left it 10 minutes before the fire began. He said he may have not completely turned off one of the propane tanks, and a pilot light probably ignited it, Seelig said.
Five 5-gallon propane containers were inside the lunchwagon. There was no evidence of any of them failing, Seelig said.
