Central West End Fire

Wicke Auto Body Building Burns

by Michael R. Allen

One of the two historic buildings occupied by Wicke Auto Body in the Central West End burned this afternoon in a spectacular blaze. The 1920s-era one-story brick garage building with steel bow-truss roof is located in the 400 block of Newstead just south of Olive Street.  Television station KMOV has raw footage here here.
