RANTOUL, IL —Fire caused an estimated $30,000 damage to a food truck parked in Rantoul on Saturday night.
At 11:22 p.m., firefighters were dispatched to the 900 block of East Champaign Avenue, where a Burrito King truck was on fire.
“The owner had placed an electric heater inside the truck to keep the water pump from freezing,” Fire Chief Ken Waters said.
Owner of the food truck is Uriel Sanchez Garduno of Urbana.
Waters said the owner had checked on the water heater about 7 p.m., and everything was fine. A little more than four hours later, a passerby saw flames inside the truck and alerted authorities.
