Firefighters Battle 2 Alarm Apartment Fire

March 06, 2018 - 8:52 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A 2-alarm fire fills the upper floors of a north St. Louis apartment complex with smoke.


Captain Garon Mosby says they were called to the Fairgrounds Apartments on Natural Bridge near Grand just after 2:00 Monday afternoon.

He says things could have turned out much worse than they did.

"It's a good thing the door was closed to the apartment. Firefighters got inside and got the fire down, had the door been open we could potentially have had a different outcome, different story," he says. 


The fire was in the kitchen of an unoccupied apartment on the 6th floor -- it's unclear what caused it. No one was injured.
