Captain Dan Sutter said two people took shelter in the basement and, remarkably, were not hurt.
When firefighters got to the three-story brick building at the corner of Magnolia and Louisiana, flames had engulfed the basement then quickly filled the first floor.
St. Louis Fire Department Capt. Dan Sutter said firefighters found Salsman and one of her two dogs together in the house.
Fire Department spokesman Dan Sutter says flames were already shooting through the roof of the three-story residential building when they arrived.
St. Louis Fire Captain Dan Sutter says crews were called to a home in the 5300 block of Greer around 2 a.m.
Firefighters were able to pull the unidentified woman from the rubble of the three-story building that collapsed Thursday afternoon.
