A year after fire swept through the four-story 3949 Lindell Apartments, the building is about to reopen.
Fire broke out in the attic of the 197 unit building on July 17th of 2012. The five alarm fire quickly spread through the Central West End complex. No one was hurt, but more than half of the building was destroyed. St. Louis fire officials say the blaze burned so hot that investigators were not able to determine a cause.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the building now has sprinklers in the attic, a firefighting feature absent in the original building.
Tenants have already moved into one rebuilt section, with the rest of the project will reopen in mid-August.
