O’Fallon apartment building fire
Multiple agencies responded to a fire just after 8 p.m. Monday at an apartment building in O’Fallon.
Fire crews were dispatched to the residence in the 500 block of Donna Drive, Deputy Chief Bruce Green of the Fairview Heights Fire Department said.
Fairview Heights and Lebanon fire departments were called in for mutual aid to the O’Fallon Fire Department.
O’Fallon Fire Chief Brad White said on Tuesday that the fire had started in an outside storage closet behind the apartment building and that fire crews were able to keep it contained to just that area. The flames did not spread to the living quarters portion of the building and there were no injuries, White said.
The cause of the fire was still unknown, according to White. He said most of what was damaged were “odds and ends” kept in a storage area, like paint and tools.
