CSW BREAKING: Two Burned in Northland KC-MO Tank Explosion

The original call came from KC-MO Fire and EMS at 2:07 p.m.- erronously dipatched to the 7300 block of Northwest (NW) 86th Street for a "house explosion."

Fire company 44 found the incident instead at the same address on "84th Terrace-" an apparent tank explosion of some sort in "the backyard" of a residence there.

KC-MO FD-EMS reports "2 patients:"

One "an approximately 50-year-old male with 2nd and 3rd-degree burns to 90% of his body" and "a mid-20's female with burns on the right side of her body- arms- legs and back."

The male patient is considered in very critical with this extent of burns- the female in serious condition.

EMS also told a hospital that the burns were the result of "a tank explosion" of an unknown "gas" related to activity around "a barbeque pit."

The patients were enroute to the University of Kansas (KU) Med Center's burn unit.

I hope it wasn't propane!

Propane is such a clean gas.
