6. The NBC affiliate in Kansas City (KSHB 41) has more details and updates:

UPDATE, 2:38 a.m.: Pettis County Sheriff Kevin Bond said initially that residents within a 3-mile radius of the explosion were evacuated, but that has since been reduced to a half-mile radius. Firefighters from approximately ten stations are currently working to extinguish the flames, but they were delayed while waiting for the pipeline company to shut off gas through the pipeline.

Bond confirmed earlier reports that no workers were present nor were any injuries reported.

UPDATE, 3:37 a.m.: Seven buildings are currently on fire at a swine farm near the explosion. The flames are being fueled by hay, according to reporter Sarah Hollenbeck.
