Truck catches fire, disrupts holiday shopping on the Plaza

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Holiday shopping came to an abrupt halt on the Country Club Plaza on Sunday.

Just before 3 p.m., a truck caught fire right outside the parking garage on 47th and Wyandotte, just outside Halls.

The store closed for business after smoke entered the store. They will be open with normal hours on Monday.

The truck fire stopped many shoppers in the tracks: "the front part of the car was on fire; it was shooting flames up to the ceiling. It took quite a while for the people to come over," Prakash Patel said.

The garage was filled with smoke, causing many shoppers to have to wait to get their cars.

Firefighters are investigating the cause of the fire.
