ST. LOUIS — A building has been evacuated in south St. Louis after a car crashed into it, according to the St. Louis Fire Department.

It's not clear whether there are any injuries.

Around 12:40 p.m., the St. Louis Fire Department was called to the scene at the 8300 block of South Broadway in the Carondelet neighborhood. Once there, firefighters evacuated a two-story building.

Fire officials said Spire and Ameren crews also were asked to respond to the scene to investigate a possible gas leak. A fire department spokesman said the building was evacuated after the crash due to elevated gas levels in the building.

Crews will make repairs to the service line after a tow truck removes the vehicle.
