One person still in critical condition from explosion, fire at JJ's Restaurant

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - One person remains in critical condition after a deadly natural gas explosion at a Kansas City restaurant that killed one person and injured 15 others.

A spokesman for the University of Kansas Hospital says two other victims were in serious condition and one was in fair condition Thursday, two days after the massive blast near the city's Country Club Plaza.

Most of the other victims have been treated and released from various hospitals.

Formal identity of a body pulled from the rubble early Wednesday was delayed by a winter storm that brought most activity in the area to a halt Thursday.

However, Genny Cramer told The Associated Press on Wednesday that she is sure her daughter, Megan Cramer, a 46-year-old server at JJ's, was the victim.
