ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Firefighters battled four fires within an hour early Monday morning.

Fifteen minutes after the fire in Cahokia, a vehicle caught fire on Joe Street in Fairmont Park, Illinois. Police said the vehicle was in front of the home when it caught fire.

About one hour after the first fire broke out in Washington Park, firefighters were called to a vacant house fire in the 8200 block of Riley in south St. Louis. Firefighters said they were able to put the flames out using an aggressive interior attack.
