Three-alarms of St. Louis firefighters "fought the blaze from inside the building rather than using aerial trucks-" says the St. LOUIS (MO) POST-DISPATCH story.

Aerial trucks wouldn't reach more than 10 floors anyway- but the fire was under control around 8:30 a.m. with only one slight injury- a woman who had short-of-breath- was reported.
