On February 7, 2007 a chemical plant fire in Kansas City, Missouri set off a thunderous explosion. The explosion generated flames approximately100 feet in the air and covered a section of downtown in black smoke. Authorities were not immediately sure what caused the blaze that destroyed the ChemCentral plant. The fire, which began in the afternoon, burned for approximately nine hours before firefighters used foam to bring it under control. Police evacuated homes and businesses within 1 mile of the plant.
Two workers at Chemcentral Corp. endured minor injuries after several 55-gallon drums of chemicals exploded behind the warehouse, touching off more explosions and fires on the site in a mixed industrial and residential neighborhood northeast of downtown. Police drove through the streets implementing a mandatory evacuation of homes and businesses within a one-mile radius of the company, which stores and distributes various chemicals and solvents.
Ken Hannon, a spokesman for the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, said a number of chemicals are at the property, including mineral spirits, turpentine and other solvents.
