Five Alarm fire consumes apartment building in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  Firefighters plan another sweep of the apartment building at 3949 that burned Tuesday night.

They’ll be keeping an eye out for pets that may have survived the blaze.

Jeane Jae with the Missouri Humane Society says they’ve had a report that a cat is still roaming the building, perhaps too frightened to come out.

Humane Society officials are still holding a cat, a hampster and a couple of dogs for residents at their Macklind headquarters.

At least one hotel that’s providing shelter for homeless apartment residents is allowing pets.

Jae talks about one happy reunion between fire victim and pet.

“After they got the flames sufficiently subdued the fire department was able to go in and they brought the dog out,” she says.

The dog’s owner, unaware her pet had been rescued, got a call from the Humane Society with the glad tidings.
