EUGENE, Ore. – An explosion happened in the Buck Buck food cart located on Madison St. around 8 a.m. Sunday.

The explosion destroyed the food cart and officials said it also caused damage to three surrounding buildings. They said a door was blown down at Oakshire Brewing Public House, which neighbored the food cart. Officials also said the explosion somehow engaged the taps at Oakshire and beer spewed everywhere.

Nobody was injured in the explosion and officials do not have an estimate for how much damage was caused.

An owner of the business next door was attending church at St. Mary's when the explosion happened. 

He said he could feel the building shake when the blast happened. 

Officials from Eugene Springfield Fire are still on scene investigating the cause of the fire, but they said the explosion may have been caused by a malfunctioning gas line.

The owners took to Facebook to share the news and thank the community for their support saying "things can be replaced, people cannot."
