ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Firefighters across the area battled fires and frigid temperatures overnight.

Around 11:15 p.m. Sunday, firefighters in Ferguson were called to a fire on Manor Lane.

When they arrived, there was heavy fire through the home, forcing them to do an exterior attack. Neighbors said they home was occupied, but it is unclear if the residents were home at the time of the fire.

At the same time firefighters in Ferguson were battling a blaze, fire crews in Centreville were called to a 3-alarm fire in the 700 block of South 48th Street.

“It was a challenge due to the fact that the hose lines were freezing and the cold weather is a challenge for any firefighter this time of year,” said Church Road Fire Chief Dwayne Carpenter.

Fire officials said all the home’s occupants were able to make it to safety.

About three hours later, firefighters were called to the 1600 block of Emerald Creek Court in north St. Louis County. The occupants of that home also made it out of the home safely.

No one was injured during the three overnight fires.

The cause of the fires are under investigation.
