KANSAS CITY, Mo. - It was a beloved fixture on Kansas City's culinary scene for more than 27 years. A legendary wine list, well-reviewed food, hospitable staff and intimate setting made JJ's a smart choice for everything from popping a cork on a rare varietal to popping the question.

But Tuesday's deadly blast reduced the Country Club Plaza landmark to scorched rubble and apparently killed an employee.

The blast occurred after a construction crew apparently struck a natural gas line.

Fifteen people also were injured. The dead person has not been formally identified, but a woman says she's confident based on information from authorities that it was her daughter, Megan Cramer, a 46-year-old server at JJ's.
