CAHOKIA, Ill. (KMOV)—A Cahokia apartment building was destroyed Monday morning when flames ripped through the complex, torching everything inside.

Firefighters were called to the 500 block of Mildred just after 6 a.m. in reference to the fire.  When they arrived, they reported seeing flames shooting from the roof a two-story structure.

During the fire, part of the roof collapsed.  It took crews a little over two hours to fully extinguish the flames.  

The building is considered a total loss.
