Owner of food truck that caught fire speaks out

MILWAUKEE-- The owner of a food truck that went up in flames on Milwaukee's south side is struggling to get back on his feet to support his wife and three kids.

\"As days go on, I feel it more and more... not having a job, not having income for my family,\" said Francisco Hernandez, about losing the food truck that he called \"How many for you?\"

Hernandez went from being a food vendor in the streets, to buying the food truck that became a staple on union street and greenfield on Milwaukee's south side.

The food truck caught on fire on Wednesday afternoon, but the cause of the fire is still unclear.

Hernandez says he just wants to move forward.

\"I don't know what I'm going to do but I'm trying to get over this big bump,\" said Hernandez.

The Hernandez family has set up a donation can at Pete's Fruit Market near 16th and Greenfield for those who want to help.
