ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) – Several house fires broke out just blocks apart from each other in a north St. Louis city neighborhood early Monday.

Authorities said the first fire started inside a vacant home in the 4800 block of Bessie shortly before 2 a.m. The fire gutted the home, causing the roof to collapse.

Another fire started a short time later inside a detached garage in the 4700 block of Penrose Avenue. It was unknown if anyone was inside the garage when the fire started.

Crews then worked to put out flames at a home near the intersectiong of Lee Avenue and Shreve just after 3 a.m. The cause of that fire was unclear.

Police do not believe the fires are related, but they continue to investigate. 

No injuries were reported.
