St. Louis (MO) Fire Apparatus Got Stuck on Icy Road

Icy streets in south St. Louis City caused problems for firefighters as they tried to contain a fire in a warehouse Sunday morning.

“This street here is just a solid sheet of ice, about two inches thick, so it was fairly hazardous,” said St. Louis Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson, “We had one truck maneuvering slowly. He slid off the road because of the weight of the truck. We’ve got him out. He’s okay.”

Authorities said one man lived in the warehouse, but was not inside when the fire started.

Firefighters believe a wood-burning stove may have caused the fire.
