Explosion levels KC restaurant on Blue Ridge Boulevard

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A local restaurant is nothing but rubble after an explosion last Tuesday.

Around 9:45 p.m. people living near the  Steak'M Take'M at 87th and Blue Ridge called 911 to report an explosion that left nothing but brick, shingles and rebar scattered.

When firefighters arrived, they put out the flames that were burning whatever was left of the restaurant.

According to Steak’M and Take’M's website, the owners have two other restaurants. This particular building used to be a Chinese restaurant before it was converted to a Philly cheesesteak grill.

FOX4's Matt Stewart reached out to the owners for comment, but the website's email and phone number were both disconnected.

According to the Missouri Secretary of State’s office, the owners of Steak’M and Take’M created the company six years ago, but failed last month to re-register the company’s name with the state.

A review online shows someone ate there late last week, so it appears this restaurant was very much still in business when it exploded Tuesday night.

Officials said no one was inside, so no one was hurt. Now the investigation begins into what caused this explosion.
