CREVE COEUR, Mo. – Firefighters have extinguished a blaze at a business park building that housed three SSM Health offices in Creve Coeur Tuesday morning.

The blaze broke out at the Corporate Square building located on Lindbergh just north of Olive. When crews arrived, flames were coming out of the second floor of the building. Fire crews can be seen on ladders and using hoses.

There was no one was inside the building at the time of the fire. Fox 2 reporter Blair Ledet reports employees were rerouted to a different location and everyone that was in the area is safe.

The fire was contained shortly after 5:30 a.m, though crews were expected to be on scene throughout the morning to contain hot spots and clear debris. They are examining walls and ceilings to check for fire extensions.

One building sustained smoke damage, another suffered significant water damage, and the final office is in bad shape, according to officials.

Originally, Creve Coeur, West Overland, and Frontenac fire crews responded to the scene. After that, a slew of other crews started to file in to assist.

Fire investigators are on scene, along with Spire and Ameren trying to find out what caused the fire. We will post any updates on the fire investigation as soon as we get more information.
