A four-alarm fire engulfed a large warehouse in the Hill neighborhood last night.

Our correspondent Jaime Lees was on the scene at the 3000 block of Daggett, near Hereford; she captured these pictures of the blaze.

The fire was first reported at 10:11 p.m., according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and took about two and a half hours to vanquish.
