FERGUSON, MO (KPLR) – Monday night over twenty businesses in along West Florissant and other areas near Ferguson were looted and/or burned to the ground.

At dawn Tuesday the smoldering remains were visible to all.

Businesses who were just getting back on their feet after being looted and vandalized in August were hit again.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster made an unannounced visit to the businesses affected by Monday's looting and fires to see the damage for himself. Some of the owners didn't greet him, while other were more receptive.

But for many of the owners their thoughts were on what to do now.
