Fire officials in St. Louis are trying to determine the cause of a blaze in a vacant six-story building near downtown.

The fire broke out before noon Thursday. There were no reports of injuries, though the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website reported that what was believed to be homeless people were seen fleeing the building. By early afternoon, the fire was under control.
