South St. Louis (KSDK) - A one alarm fire just before 3:30 a.m. Thursday kept firefighters busy in south St. Louis.

When fire officials arrived to the scene in the 1000 block of Tower Grove at Arco, fire was already visible on the first floor of the two story three family flat.  A fire spokesman tells NewsChannel 5 the building was vacant at the time of the fire.

Firefighters battled the fire inside a front doorway until they were able to enter the building and contain the blaze.  One of the three units was extensively damaged by fire and the other two sustain less significant damage.

No reports at this time anyone was hurt.  Fire investigators are now searching for the cause of the fire.
