KANSAS CITY (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Searchers are combing through the rubble, searching for survivors after a building exploded in Kansas City.

That restaurant burst into flames Tuesday night following a natural gas explosion.

At least 14 people were injured, with two in critical condition and two more are still missing.

Search crews have been working throughout the night, praying for a miracle.

"We've had cadaver dogs on the pile for about an hour now and they have indicated that they have not made any hits whatsoever," said Chief Paul Berardi of the KCMO FD.

The cause of the explosion is still under investigation. At this point fire officials believe a utility contractor may have accidentally triggered the blast.
