Crews respond to gas leak at Country Club Plaza in KC, officials say

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Crews responded to a gas leak Friday night at the Country Club Plaza, officials say, but all was well after about three hours of work.

The Kansas City Fire Department and gas company Spire worked to resolve the problem near 47th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Meanwhile, KC police helped divert traffic in the area.

No stores in the area were evacuated during what a Spire spokesperson called “a small leak” coming from a pipe underground.

Information about what caused the gas leak was not immediately available.

The area has now been cleared.
