Several KC-MO Fire department companies- as well as the KC-MO Police department are on the scene of what is reported as "a large" water main break that has apparently also caused a gas line to leak at 12th Street and Belmont Avenue.


Both 12th Street and Belmont have been closed- and at least several homes and businesses in this area have been evacuated.

Emergency crews are awaiting both the Water Department as well as the Gas Service company crews to shut of the affected lines

This incident was dispatched by the fire department at 10:49 a.m. and the water department was notified shortly thereafter.

However- it has taken more than 90 minutes (12:26 p.m.) for a Water department "representative to arrive.



The situation was reportedly resolved without further incident or injury by 3 p.m.Thursday afternoon.
