Tuesday evening’s tragic explosion and fire on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City may have some asking basic questions about gas leaks.
Here’s a brief primer:
How do I know if I have a gas leak?
- If it’s a natural gas leak, you will smell it.
It’s an unpleasant smell, like rotten eggs.
Natural gas goes through a lot of processing before it can be used as fuel.
After all the other chemicals are taken out, what’s left is methane.
