Does anyone know what happened with a plane that had a fire on board and had to emergency land in Kansas City...All I know is that there was a fire in the back of a plane and it landed someone in the KC Metro...Anyone have any details?

Yes, it was CO flight 574, enroute from IAH-MSP, a 737. Apparently, the plate for the coffee maker/warmer caught fire, spreading smoke (and I'm sure a bit of fear!). The fire was put out in the air, but the captain wisely declared an emergency, and put it down at MCI. Uneventful landing, and no injuries.
