lulu food truck fire houstonHOUSTON, TX – The new Lulu Blues: a Creperie food truck is out of commission after catching on fire Saturday.

Business owner/operator Laura Duffey was on her way to River Oaks Beauty Spa to inaugurate service when she pulled over after seeing white smoke coming from the engine.

After she got out of the truck, the white smoke turned to black and the truck burned down around 5:30 p.m. on Loop 610 South, just before the Memorial Drive exit, Duffey said.

“We hope to reopen, but couldn’t say how soon,” Duffey said in an email. “It depends on our insurance company.”

Duffey said the truck had a new engine and a recently replaced starter.

The cause of the fire is being investigated, she said.
