ST. LOUIS — Smoke can be seen for miles as firefighters work to put out flames coming from a building downtown. 

The St. Louis Fire Department took to social media, reporting a fire on the 2000 block of Delmar early Saturday afternoon in the Downtown West neighborhood. 

With fire crews on scene, the department said there was heavy smoke coming out of a three-story brick warehouse.  

A short time later, the city's fire department provided an update, saying, "Building evacuated. All members accounted for outside the building."

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
