Power is back at US Bank Plaza downtown.
Ameren officials say it should be business as usual today after a 36-story downtown office building was evacuated yesterday because of an underground transformer fire.
Ameren officials say the transformer was inside a vault under a sidewalk at 7th Street and Locust.
Fire crews rescued at least ten people from elevators. No injuries were reported.
An underground electrical fire has forced the evacuation of a building in downtown St. Louis.
Fire crews are on the scene at 7th and Washington. Images show thick smoke pouring out of grates on the street. Tenants of some other nearby buildings are not being allowed to leave.
Fire crews are waiting for Ameren to cut power to the area so they can continue to fight the blaze.
A well-known Kirkwood eatery may be closed for a few days after an electrical fire shut it down Sunday morning.
Firefighters were called to the Texas Roadhouse restaurant in the 1200 block of Kirkwood Road a little before 11:00 a.m.
Kirkwood fire Chief Tom Openlander said it appeared the fire started in a neon sign that sits high on the side of the restaurant facing Lindbergh Boulevard. He said it was fortunate timing because the fire was spotted quickly and before the restaurant had opened.
The fire did minor damage above the roof line.
