A Missouri State agency has asked for more time to report findings on the deadly explosion at JJ’s Restaurant in Kansas City, Mo. The findings are now expected nearly a year after the blast and fire.

A report had earlier been expected weeks ago.

A buildup of flammable natural gas exploded at the restaurant on the west side of the Country Club Plaza last Feb. 19. It killed one person, Megan Cramer, who worked at the restaurant.
