The owner of a Halal food company was arrested Thursday for allegedly storing more than 100 propane tanks at an Astoria warehouse.

Hany Arafa, 45, was charged with reckless endangerment after fire marshals discovered the tanks while inspecting the Tajeen Halal Food warehouse at 8-51 Astoria Blvd.

The FDNY said that the tanks contained about 2,300 pounds of propane.

The flammable tanks were stored without a permit, according to the FDNY, and improperly stored in close proximity to the sidewalk creating “a grave risk of danger to the public.”

The FDNY seized the tanks.
