KTRS, St. Louis, MO - Snow, and lots of it, fell across the St. Louis area Sunday, wreaking havoc for road crews, firefighters and first responders.

Accumulation totals were in the double-digits in many areas with the depth at Lambert Airport officially measuring 10.8 inches. Downtown measured over a foot. The "precip" may have moved out, but life threatening temperatures have moved in and that is posing an extreme challenge.

A fire in St. Charles and one in Fairview Heights resulted in one death and several injuries yesterday. Fox2 News reports that four firefighters from the St. Charles Fire Department were injured Sunday night battling a house fire in the 600 block of Nancy Avenue. The family residing in the home escaped without injury. The firefighters were transported to St. John’s and Mercy hospitals. Three have been released and one is still receiving treatment. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Integris Southwest Medical Center spokeswoman Brooke Cayot (KAY'-ot) said 10 of 37 patients being treated at that facility Monday are listed in critical condition. Twelve are in serious and 15 others are listed in fair or good condition.
