ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – A fire damages part of a south city business. Work performed earlier at the business Wednesday may have lead to the fire.

A witness driving by saw the fire and called 911.

She said flames were coming up through the roof and appeared to be isolated to one section of the roof.

One investigator said there was some welding work on the roof today, but we don't know if that has anything to do with the fire at this point.

The good news is that flames did not work their way into the building and the fire was contained to the exterior of the roof.
