Brick warehouse partially collapses in South St. Louis

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A two-story brick warehouse partially collapsed in south St. Louis around 7:30am Thursday.

The property is located near the intersection of Ohio Avenue and Victor Street.

The St. Louis Fire Department is on the scene and says no one was inside and no one was injured.

Residents in the area say they saw the building starting to lean after the recent high winds and started asking for the building to be demolished. They were worried something like this would happen. They are thankful no one was hurt when the bricks fell.

The city collapse task force will be taking over the scene and the demolition of the structure.
