Utility Report on JJ's Explosion Pushed Back Again
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Missouri utility regulators have again pushed back their report on a Kansas City restaurant explosion that killed a waitress.
The Kansas City Star reports that Missouri Public Service Commission staff had promised to publish the results in early December. But the commission posted on its website Monday that the report is now likely to be filed on or before Feb. 6 - nearly a year after the blast at JJ's restaurant on the Country Club Plaza.
Authorities have said the Feb. 19 explosion was caused when a natural gas supply line was breached by a crew from Heartland Midwest, an Olathe, Kan.-based cable company subcontractor. Forty-six-year-old Megan Cramer was killed and more than a dozen people were injured.
