Gas Explosion in Kansas Injures 14

(CNN) -- It was happy hour at JJ's when the roof blew off the popular Kansas City, Missouri, restaurant.

"When we got to the scene, we had a fully involved restaurant that had patrons, probably several patrons, inside at the time of the incident," said Fire Chief Paul Berardi.

A natural gas explosion leveled the eatery about 6 p.m. CT Tuesday. Two people were missing and 14 were injured.
