ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Investigators are trying to determine if high winds caused a building collapse that trapped two people, including a woman who had to be rescued in north St. Louis on Thursday.

Fire Capt. Dan Sutter says the building in the 1300 block of N. Garrison collapsed onto another three-story building. Fire fighters pulled the trapped woman out through a second-floor window.

She declined medical treatment.

Wintry weather blew into the St. Louis region Thursday with strong wind gusts accompanied by mostly light but blowing snow.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
