A family narrowly escaped a serious vehicle fire last night in St. Louis City. The fire broke out just after 8:15 p.m. in a downtown St. Louis parking garage. Three vehicles were damaged in the fire at 300 North Broadway, in the parking garage of the Marquette building. A family claims their vehicle caught on fire as they were parking in the garage. They were able to run from the fiery vehicle to safety. Flames and smoke could be seen from miles away and filled the garage and adjacent buildings. The St. Louis Fire Department arrived on the scene and had to haul equipment up the side of the garage to the 7th floor to put out the fire. The firefighters were able to extinguish the fire by using foam to smother the flames and fuel vapor. No one was injured, but the investigation is ongoing. It is unclear what started the destructive fire.
