Fire in Hill East – Fast DCFD Response

A reader reports:

“A house caught fire this morning on 14th and A SE. At least 3 fire engines and 2 ambulances were at the scene. Smoke was billowing out of both the front and back of the house. Several firefighters climbed on top of the house and smashed holes into the roof.

As far as I know, no one was injured, but that is not confirmed.”

  • I hope it was a quick response… the fire station is two blocks away at 15th and C!

    I also hope everyone is alright – people and pets!

  • I was wondering why there were so many fire trucks down the block when I was leaving for work this morning. Thanks for the update!

    I also heard on the radio that a pedestrian was struck by a car at 19th and East Capitol. Busy morning for emergency personnel in Hill East. I hope everyone is okay!
