Flames, smoke pour out of large house fire in north St. Louis

ST. LOUIS — Firefighters are on the scene of a large house fire in the north St. Louis neighborhood of Greater Ville.

A live stream from the fire department’s Periscope account showed bright orange flames coming out of both floors of the two-story brick house at Cote Brilliante and Bishop PL Scott Avenue. Thick, black smoke was streaming out of all the windows.

“We’re in full defensive operations,” a firefighter on the scene said during the live stream.

Fire officials said the house was abandoned. No injuries have been reported at this time.

Later in the day Sunday, firefighters responded to another large fire about a mile away in the 4500 block of Cottage Avenue. That fire also involved a vacant, two-story house. A fire investigation is underway.
