KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A massive fire is burning in an upscale shopping and entertainment district in Kansas City.

Fire officials didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment Tuesday evening, but television video shows flames shooting out of the Country Club Plaza.

Television video showed dozens of firefighters and other emergency responders battling a massive blaze through heavy smoke, and debris littering surrounding streets.

The shopping area was established in 1922 by J.C. Nichols. Based on the architecture of Seville, Spain, it includes retail, restaurants, apartments and offices.
