Fire burns at Kansas City shopping district
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A massive fire is burning in an upscale shopping and entertainment district in Kansas City.
Fire officials didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment Tuesday evening, but television video shows flames shooting out of the Country Club Plaza.
Television video showed dozens of firefighters and other emergency responders battling a massive blaze through heavy smoke, and debris littering surrounding streets.
The shopping area was established in 1922 by J.C. Nichols. Based on the architecture of Seville, Spain, it includes retail, restaurants, apartments and offices.

7. I just peeked and the reporter talked of a strong smell of gas
where he is, far away from the blaze. I'm surprised they haven't been able to shut the main down.
Apparently a line let loose and employees were able to get most people out before it blew.

22. I'm not greatly worried now, based on what I've seen....
She may have been temporarily evacuated from her apartment, but that's about the worst that I'd expect.
