KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Police say seven or eight people have been injured in the gas main explosion and fire at a restaurant in Kansas City.
Police Sgt. Tony Sanders said the manager of JJ's restaurant also has told police three people are unaccounted for, but he doesn't know if they left before the explosion.
Sanders says a few of those injured have been taken to hospitals.
The massive fire is burning in an upscale shopping and entertainment district in Kansas City. Television video showed dozens of firefighters and other emergency responders battling a massive blaze through heavy smoke, and debris littering surrounding streets.
