ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Authorities battled a fire that swept through an abandoned warehouse in north St. Louis on Wednesday.
The fire started at a building at the intersection of DeSoto and 2nd, just east of Interstate 70, around 4:30 p.m.
Aerial equipment was used to put out the blaze from above.
Authorities said while the warehouse was abandoned, they were concerned because it’s located near several businesses, including a chemical plant.
No injuries have been reported, and the fire was contained shortly before 5:15 p.m..
