“Update/final: 3700 blk Georgia Ave NW. Had fire in the duct work. Fire is out. All searches negative.”
Reader TML took these amazing photos and writes:
“The engines arrived around 8:30 this morning. No one was injured, and the fire was under control very quickly. We have lived across the street from the Sweet Mango now at the Park Place apartments, for two years…and this is the third time we’ve seen Sweet Mango on fire. Kinda leaves one speechless…”
In Dec. 2010 a fire closed Sweet Mango for nearly three months. Thanks to all who sent word about today’s fire.

A reader writes in wondering what will happen to the property at 1327 Girard St, NW which was decimated by fire on May 4th. Does anyone know what happens now? Any idea how long the process will take before a new property is built?
Thanks to a reader for sending. She writes:
“The rubble and smoke next to our new home. Our place and kitty are ok.”
