Dear PoP – Hiatt Place Car Fire

View Larger Map

“Dear PoP,

Have you heard anything about the car fire that happened last night on the 3200 bock of Hiatt Place NW. I live across 16th Street from Powell Rec Center and just before 10pm last night I heard a huge boom and when I looked out my window I could see rapidly rising flames on a parked car. I also thought I heard 4-5 gunshots in the following minutes between the explosion and the arrival of the fire trucks.”

I haven’t seen anything from MPD or DCFIREEMS yet. Anyone else who lives around here see what happened? I’ll be sure to update as more info becomes available.
