Gas escaping under pressure from storage facilities 4 miles away traveled underground and emerged through the open well inside the building. The gas ignited, producing a large explosion and initiating the Hutchinson Gas Crisis on January 17, 2001. City employees, public safety officials, and non-profit organizations worked tirelessly to determine the nature and source of the gas, and to ensure the safety of Hutchinson residents. The land for this parking lot was donated to the city by owners of the destroyed businesses - Decor Party Supplies and Hayes Sight & Sound.
