Three people were injured, two seriously, when they turned on a portable burner in the passenger cab of a garbage truck on Saturday, causing an explosion.

The men were turning on the burner, used to heat water for coffee, while traveling on Route 70 near the Elyakim Junction when the explosion occurred.

MDA paramedics evacuated two men in serious condition to Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer and a third man, lightly injured, to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa.
