BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KSDK) – No one was injured when a two-alarm fire broke out at the Main Street Market Monday evening. Firefighters say the building is a total loss.

The local grocer is located at 8193 W. Main Street. The building has been around since 1946.

Two employees were inside when the fire started. They say customers left the building moments before the fire broke out.

An employee tells us there were electricians inside the building working for the past several days, but no word if that's related to the cause of the fire.

Firefighters were still working to put out the fire more than 4 hours after it started, then they will begin the investigation to determine the official cause.
