Natural gas odor forces evacuation of World Market store in south Lawrence

December 30, 2009


Emergency crews were called to World Market, 3106 Iowa St., at 1:42 p.m. Wednesday in response to an odor of natural gas inside the store.

As of 1:48 p.m., an emergency dispatcher said the building was being evacuated and crews were investigating the source of the odor.

Why just World Market? Wouldn't TJMaxx, Michael's and BB&B also be affected? If World Market were to blow up from a gas leak the other three businesses would be at risk as well, no?

There's a natural gas joke in there somewhere....

Who cares about TJMaxx and Michael's? BB&B and WM should both expand and boot those other two B's out of there!

Usually they print yesterday's news, this time they're trying to get ahead.

they would have evacuated TJ Maxx, but no one was there and as for Michael's, that was our one chance to get every scrapbooker in the world into one room, then blow it up. Opportunity wasted!
