Fire fighters will be on the scene through much of the night after a 4-alarm fire destroyed most of a warehouse in downtown St. Louis.
A spokesman for the fire department says the fire has been contained, but crews will remain on site to cool off any hot spots. The blaze began around 11:30 this morning at the Servco warehouse just south of the Poplar Street Bridge. Everyone in the building was able to evacuate safely. The fire sent plumes of smoke into the air that could be seen for miles. The top two floors of the building collapsed. At the height of the blaze more than 80 firefighters were on scene.
No word on what caused the fire.
