A food truck was heavily damaged Sunday night by a fire.
Lafayette Firefighters were called to the 1900 block of West University at about 12:30 a.m., a spokesman said.
They found the Taqueria El Dollar #1 food truck in flames. The fire was out within 10 minutes, but the truck was heavily damaged.
The food truck closed around 10:00 pm. The owners indicated that everything was operating properly last night. The employees left around 10:30 pm.
Fire investigators determined that fire originated on top of a small two-burner stove. A pot of oil used for cooking was left on the stove top. The burner was not turned off prior to leaving. The cause of the fire was ruled an accident.
