   KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Kansas City police say it appears a car crashed into a gas main before a massive fire erupted in an upscale shopping and entertainment district.
 
   Police spokeswoman Rhonda Flores said injuries were reported Tuesday but she didn't know how many or how severe. She says an initial call for three ambulances had been increased to 10.
 
   Flores said it appears a car crashed into a gas main near a restaurant in the area known as The Country Club Plaza about 6:03 p.m. She says the crash appeared to be accidental.
 
   Dozens of firefighters and other emergency responders could be seen battling a massive blaze that appeared to have engulfed an entire block, with flames burning through building roofs.
 
   Black smoke is swirling in the air and debris litters surrounding streets.
