St. Louis fire crews called out a third alarm as a large three-story St. Louis warehouse went up in flames early Tuesday morning.
Firefighters had the fire knocked down at about 7 a.m. near St. Louis and Elliot avenues — also identified on the department’s Twitter page as North Leffington Avenue and University Street in addition to Dodier Avenue and University Street.
The three-alarm fire was threatening another one-story structure in the area, according to St. Louis fire officials. Crews worked to prevent the embers that were falling on the building’s roof from starting a second fire.
Crews used multiple sources of water, including four aerial hoses and two deck guns. Officials attributed this approach to the quick containment of the fire.
