ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – A house fire has broken out in a south St. Louis neighborhood Thursday morning.

Firefighters responded to the blaze in the 3400 block of Eiler. Everyone made it outside safely.

The fire started in the basement, and firefighters were able to keep it from spreading.

Officials say it's not just the fire they have to worry about. They say their response times on days like Thursday might be a little slower because of the slippery roads.
