Residents of a St. Ann apartment building damaged after a small fire last Friday are still waiting to go home. More than 160 seniors and disabled people were evacuated from the Santa Ana apartments after a cooking fire on the 10th floor caused the sprinklers to activate, flooding the high rise.
Residents had hoped to return home Tuesday, but it's taking longer for restoration crews to dry out the building than originally expected.
City and fire officials must also conduct a "walk through" before giving the all clear. That could happen on Wednesday.
Around two dozen homeowners were evacuated from their houses after a gas leak was discovered.
Just before 9 AM crews were called to the 3400 block of Macklind Avenue. The crews were unable to shut off gas to the house where the leak was located. As a precaution, more than 20 other homes were evacuated.]]>
A metro-east mall will reopen Friday morning after a bomb scare closed it early Thursday afternoon.
Fairview Heights Police say a little before 4:00 p.m. they received a call from someone who said they had planted several explosive devices inside St. Clair Square. Police notified mall officials and the building was quickly evacuated.
Fairview Heights police, U.S. Marshals, St. Clair County Sheriff's Deputies, Illinois State Police and bomb units from Scott Air Force Base spent about five hours searching the mall and all 144 shops using bomb sniffing dogs, but found nothing. The all clear was sounded about 8:30 Thursday night.
Police have now shifted their focus to find the person who made the bomb threat. Anyone with information is urged to call Fairview Heights Police.

CLERMONT, Fla. (AP) — A sinkhole cracked the foundation in a villa housing vacationers at a central Florida resort near Disney World on Sunday, causing the building to slowly sink and prompting the evacuation of the hotel, authorities said.
Lake County Sheriff's Sgt. James Vachon told WESH in Orlando the incident at the Summer Bay Resort in Clermont caused structural damage and firefighters and sheriff's deputies were working the scene together. No injuries were reported.
Witnesses told The Associated Press they could hear a cracking sound as the villa sank. A large crack was visible at the building's base.
Luis Perez, who was staying at a villa near the sinking one, said he was in his room when the lights went off around 11:30 p.m. He said he was on his way to the front desk to report the outage when he saw firefighters and police outside.
"I started walking toward where they were at and you could see the building leaning and you could see a big crack at the base of the building," said Perez, 54, of Berona, N.J.
He called the other vacationers in his group and had them come outside. Eventually, he said, authorities evacuated his villa and a third one as well.
Summer Bay Resort is about 10 miles west of Disney World.
