Fire fighters are working to keep a two-alarm fire in north St. Louis from spreading to adjacent homes.
The blaze broke out in 5000 block of Vernon about 1:30 Thursday morning. Fire crews arrived to find the 2 1/2 story home fully involved.
There's no word yet what sparked the blaze.
Fire officials say there are no injuries reported.
A two-alarm brush fire that destroyed several buildings in rural Franklin County Thursday night is prompting a warning from fire officials.
It took dozens of firefighters more than an hour to extinguish a brush fire along Highway BB near Beverly Court in Cedar Hill. No one was hurt, but the fire destroyed a camper and several out buildings in the rural community.
Cedar Hill Fire Chief Terry Soer says the blaze began as a controlled burn that got out of hand. The chief told Fox 2 News that brush fires are a real risk this time of year.
"Right now we're really concerned because of the low humidity," he said. "The leaf cover is very heavy. Obviously, we're encouraging people -- no burning outside, or anything like that."
Chief Soer says the rain that's expected this weekend will take some of the pressure off.
