   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.

A Central West End apartment building that was the scene of a massive fire last July is set to reopen.

The 3949 Lindell Apartments had housed about 250 professionals and SLU graduate students when it burned. It had taken more than 160 of firefighters from the city and county to put it out.

After seven months, the first phase of the rebuilding is complete. Units in back part of the complex are now ready for renters.

Construction on the front half of the complex, where the fire started, should be finished by August.

The cause of the blaze has never been determined.

The 3949 apartment building has set up a Facebook page to keep the community updated on the status of the building.
