Fire destroys midtown St. Louis landmark

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

ST. LOUIS -- A fire causes the old Pevely Dairy Warehouse in St. Louis to collapse.

The plant is something of a landmark in the midtown area of St. Louis, though it has been vacant since October.

No one was hurt in the fire that broke out Sunday on the first floor. It quickly spread. Fire crews decided to let the building burn.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation. Firefighters say demolition crews were working in the building when the fire began.
