Fire Gutted Historic Lafayette Square Home

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Firefighters battled a big fire in a historic Lafayette Square home overnight.

The owner says the house, in the 1100 block of Dolman Street, was his childhood home.

“It was very beautiful and we were just in the process of renovating,” he said. “The Lord knows what he is doing, he’s in charge and we just trust in him.”

Nobody was at the home at the time, but all of the family heirlooms inside are presumed lost.
