(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A fire gutted a two-story vacant building on South 6th Street Sunday morning, but no one was hurt.

Crews were called about 12:15 a.m., to the 1200 block of S. 6th St and found a building enveloped in smoke and flames. According to the St. Joseph Fire Department, firefighters stopped the flames from spreading to a second building. The second building was occupied but no one was hurt. 

SJFD said the extent of the damage is not known at this time. Crews had trouble accessing the entire building because the fire had collapsed parts of the floor.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.

Temperatures and humidity will continue to climb on Wednesday making it feel like a very humid day across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. Temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 80s and increasing moisture and instability. This will likely mean shower and thunderstorm chances for the remainder of Thursday and Thursday night.
